Green Winged Teal at Bombay Hook NWR.

I was hoping that things would pick up at Bombay Hook by now, but I didn’t get lucky. Each pool was sparsely populated, and there wasn’t much exciting or new to see.

I made several round trips of the marsh drive, and birds were moving in and out, but I didn’t see any migrating birds to speak of.

Not a wasted morning, but disappointing for this time of year.
