Dunlin at Bombay Hook NWR.

It’s been slow birding for nearly  a week. We had some rain as well, so I’m getting behind. I managed to get out a little bit, so I’m including a compilation of my trip to Bombay Hook and a few lecent local images.

I’m still not finding warblers like I want to, but at least I’m seeing a few migrants.
