Bombay Hook NWR


I am linking up with   Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday 

For this week's post I am sharing more scenery and birds from our Oct 12th visit to Bombay Hood wildlife refuge in Delaware..  I know I have been flip-flopping with different post from this getaway weekend.  We saw some beautiful fall colors, lots of birds and some flowers were still blooming.



Above are some of the birds we saw at Bombay Hook NWR were the Snowy Egret, Savannah Sparrows, Lesser Yellowlegs, American Avocets, Peregrine Falcon, Pintail Ducks, Snow Geese, Ruddy Ducks and the Belted Kingfisher.





 The fall colors seen at Bombay Hook, the red were gorgeous...



A Great Egret flies away, in the distance some red leaves poking out and on the top of the trees.



I thought these yellow flowers were pretty, nice to still see some blooms in October. I hope you enjoyed seeing more of Bombay Hook wildlife refuge..


As always I thank you in advance for stopping by and for the nice comments.

I hope you can join in on our at  Mosaic Monday and   Our World Tuesday

 Thanks to Judith our  host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  I wish everyone a happy week ahead!

  5. Wonderful colours Eileen, I see fall is still in your photos. As we drove through the grasslands of Saskatchewan all the fields are dried cut hay all the same colour and aside from the grain elevators the colour would have stayed the same.

  7. Well done mosaics keeping to a single theme in each one with nicely colored borders or background. I visited Bombay Hook once long time ago; your pics bring back good memories. I especially like the boardwalk with the fall colors and the great egret

  9. I love the sweetness of the Savannah Sparrows - and how nature protects them by coloring them the same soft brown as the brush they shelter in. Your photos are lovely!

  15. Oh the joy of accompanying you on a 'birding' jaunt would be heaven for me Eileen. The Bombay Wildlife Refuge is living up to it's name and purpose.
    The snowy Egret are magnificent, such graceful birds.
    The Autumn colours are gentle with pops of bright red and yellow!
    A perfect day.

  19. I recognize the kingfisher quite well, a female was diving in the pond for goldfish a few years ago.
    I think the yellow wildflowers look like coreopsis, they sure are pretty.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Eileen. You are my biggest supporter for visiting all the participants and I know they appreciate it as much as I do.

  30. What a great place to see birds, and fall color. I always love to see the egrets, and the belted kingfisher is so cute, unless it is fishing in your backyard pond.

  36. Your blog is always so beautifully presented. It's great to see the red of the leaves as its not something we see in Australia except where trees have been planted in gardens and properties.

  49. I so enjoyed your post today and all the birds you get to take so many pictures of. I want to say the kingfisher is the bird in the bottom right hand corner with the long beak? I don't know but I would guess he would have to have this sort of attitude to fish. So much wildlife is just another way to enjoy what mother nature has to offer, thanks

  50. I hope I get to visit some of the places where you bird someday!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow...beautiful, beautiful photos...love that walkway to nowhere!

  52. Hi Eileen, So nice to see the big numbers of birds and ducks! I especially like the little Ruddy Ducks. I miss seeing ducks often. We do have a few here in the Winter and I look forward to their arrival. Have an excellent day today!

    ReplyDelete
  53. These are all so beautiful! And my favorite is that second mosaic. Gorgeous!

  54. What a lovely way to walk. Boardwalks in the autumn are my cup of tea. We have 1 or 2 here in AZ but they are too buggy to enjoy right now. As soon as the temps go down, they will be perfect to explore again. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
