Saturday's Critter's #47

Saturday's Critter's #47

Happy weekend everyone! I am looking forward to seeing everyone's critters this week..I appreciate everyone who has linked up in the past and for those who are linking in on this week's critter party.

I am sharing more the birds and gulls seen on the beach at Ocean City, Maryland.  

 I love the look on the closest Tern..The Black Skimmer in the rear look like juveniles, they are a brownish color instead of the black color of the adult..

 What Gull?  I was thinking maybe a juvie Herring Gull. Edited, I now believe these gulls are the juvenile Laughing Gull.

 A closer look at the Black Skimmer's bill.

I am not sure if this flock of birds flying  by were the Black Ducks or DC Cormorants..I hope you enjoyed seeing more birds from Ocean City Maryland...

Ocean City, Maryland

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  

These are photos from Columbus Day weekend, hubby and I went on an overnight trip to the Delaware shore and Ocean City, Maryland..  I am sharing a shot of the sunset at Bombay Hook NWR, the next morning we drove down the coast to Ocean City, Maryland. Also,  some fences that were on the beach for Tex's Good Fences and of course sky captures for Skywatch Friday..

 I always love to see the bird houses lined up on fences.. And the sky was beautiful on this shot.

 I was not sure if these were Fish Crows or maybe the Boat-tailed Grackle? 

These birds above were seen on a fence at the Indian River Inlet, Delaware

An unusual sight at Ocean City, Md the photo above has more birds than people.  

A mixed flock of Black Skimmer, maybe Royal Terns and lots of gulls.

 The sky and fence on the Ocean City beach.. The kite shop always has some kites outside their store..

Assorted colors of beaks, legs and on their bodies..

I just love the Black Skimmers, they are cool looking birds with their neat looking bill.

Another view of the fence, beach, kites, Great Black Backed Gulls and a gray sky..We had a fun time on our little getaway trip.. I love the beach..  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences

Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
