Marsh Wren at Bombay Hook NWR.

Some days it seems as though the Spring Migration is passing me by again. I’ve spent  lot of time seeking, and not enough time finding. My guess is everything is two weeks behind normal.

I spent the morning at Bombay Hook and got a few decent images. I also stopped at Truxtun Park to get a look at the Blue Angels annual show. I haven’t finished processing everything yet, so I’ll probably add some pics later.
