Savannah Sparrow at Bombay Hook.

I made the trek to Bombay Hook this morning in hopes of finding some good water birds, but it was not happening. Some ducks have arrived, and a few Snow Geese flew over, but numbers and variety were low.

It was very windy, and the birds seemed to spook easily this morning. I made the circuit 4 times, and got a few decent images, but I’m hoping for better birds next time.
