Wildlife Reflections


This is my entry for Natures Notes  and Weekend Reflections and Friday Ark.  You can click on my links to visit.

These shots were from one of my birding trips to Bombay Hook, De. On this trip we saw many Egrets and Black Crowned Night Herons.  I alway enjoy the birds reflections and on this day there seem to be bird reflections everywhere we looked. Bombay Hook is one of my favorite wildlife refuges to visit. The birding there is great. It was cool to see so many juvenile Black Crowned Night Herons.

Thank you for visiting my shorebird post 
also thanks to Michelle of Nature Notes and James of Weekend Reflections and to the Friday Ark.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
