I tried Bombay Hook this morning in hopes of early migrants, with mixed results. There were plenty of Egrets, but not as many others I had hoped to see.
Most of the birds I saw were in the first pool (Raymond), and it wasn’t as occupied as I’ve seen it in the past. Shearness and Bear Swamp pools were very sparse.
I talked to Graeme a few minutes ago, and we’re going to try again Friday.
There were several Green Winged Teals around, but only a few nearby and in good light.
Greater Yellowlegs often forage near shore.
This Great Egret image, with the wing touching the water, is a lucky shot, but I’ll take it.
I can’t recall seeing so many Tree Swallows perched in one place before.
There were many Northern Shovelers.
There’s often a Bald Eagle perched near the main road, just like at Blackwater.
This Snow Goose is very late, and may be injured.
Mute Swans are very damaging to the environment and are actively discouraged.
American Avocets are beautiful in the right light.
