Back to Bombay Hook this morning because there’s still not much going on locally.
I arrived at dawn, but the sunrise wasn’t interesting, so I made a quick circuit as the sun rose. It was clear that many birds were visiting, so I went more slowly the second time around.
I didn’t find much in the way of migrating birds, but it was good to see that numbers are increasing. I also found a couple of friends who were visiting as well.
Many Caspian Terns were feeding in the marsh.
I saw at least three Eastern Kingbirds.
There were only two Black Necked Stilts.
I don’t see Bald Eagles in flight very often at Bombay Hook.
Many Great Egrets were feeding in the marsh.
Short Billed Dowitchers aren’t getting close to the camera.
I saw many Greater Yellowlegs, mostly in the distance.
Great Blue Herons were in every pool.
I found three juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Herons at Bear Swamp Pool. I’ve only seen this bird once before.
