I headed for Sandy Point early this morning, but as soon as I was on the road I could tell it was going to be a tepid sky, so I just kept going over the bridge to Bombay Hook.
It turned out OK. Bombay Hook can be very busy, with many species on some days, but today was not quite as prolific Still, the Avocets were a nice find, and some other migrants put on a good show. I expect things to pick up there very soon.
My love affair with Forster’s Terns continues.
Yet another Savannah Sparrow.
This Common Yellowthroat seemed unusually yellow.
I would have thought the marsh was too shallow for a Double Crested Cormorant to go fishing.
These Greater Yellowlegs were disputing the right to a fishing spot.
This Green Winged Teal is flashing her colors. So far, I’m only seeing female ducks.
I don’t recall capturing a Northern Shoveller with her beak open before.
Bombay Hook is the only place where I’ve seen American Avocets.
A few overlooked Tree Frogs.
