Birding Bombay Hook NWR

On Saturday hubby and I drove to Delaware's Bombay Hook NWR. It is one of my favorite places for birding. We also wanted a good flat spot to see the Supermoon rise. We had a great day birding, we saw lots of ducks, three juvenile Eagles and one adult Bald Eagle. Since we stayed long enough to see the Supermoon rise and we also saw a beautiful sunset. These shots are all captured on my mosaic for Mary's Mosaic Monday.

Pictured below top left is the Northern Shoveler, on the top right are the Green Winged Teals, middle left is the juvenile Eagle, middle right is a tagged Snow Goose, bottom left are two GB Herons.


I love the colors on these Green-winged Teals.

  3. We've been blessed to have some green-winged teals here last winter for a few days stopover with shovelers, ring-necks, and widgeons. They were wonderful! We get the blue-winged teals occasionally too!

  11. I had heard of sightings locally of the bald eagle. It has been almost lost to this area but is on the comback. I hope to see one of these majestic birds. V

  33. Hi again Eileen, I was just now looking again at the blog post here and decided that you should print up that photo of the super moon rising that you have chosen as the header today. That particular photo would make a nice poster, wouldn't it? It would also make a nice note card. Wonderful! Have a really good day today!

  34. I am going to say also that the sunset would be an equally nice picture to print with regard to a poster and card - sorry for the minor error in my last comment. Both are very very beautiful photos.
