Birding Delaware's shore

I am linking up with Friday Ark   and Misty Dawn's Camera Critters Click on my links to visit these wonderful memes.

These are some of the birds I saw while birding with my friends on the Delaware Shore. We birded all day long at the Bombay Hook NWR and the DuPont Nature Center. 


Below is a mixture of gulls and terns. The Royal Terns will have dark legs and beaks


Cormorants and Terns

This one below is a young Forster's Tern. A non-breeding adult will have the black eye patch and orange legs.


Cormorants
I wasn't expecting to see a Brown Creeper land on the poles near the Terns and Gulls

Two American Oystercatchers with their carrot beaks

Thanks to the host of Friday Ark and to Misty Dawn for hosting Camera Critters. Also, thank you for stopping by to see my post.

Great photographs especially the second one with the Cormorants and Terns sitting on the Groynes. Have a lovely weekend, I am sure you are off out again bird watching. Jackie in Surrey, UK.

I have gone birding once or twice at a sanctuary near me...it's a very lovely thing to do if you can spot the birds high up! :)
