Eastern Neck NWR, part 2

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.

Blog update:
To those who have not heard, I am truly sorry to pass on this sad news and to hear of the loss of our blogging sister Tina  @ EG Camera Girl and her husband. My heartfelt condolences and prayers go to the family, may God give them peace and comfort in these difficult days. Tina will be truly missed in our blogging world. I will remember Tina when I look back at her beautiful photos, she has left many photograph memories that we can cherish.


RIP Tina.



This is part 2 of our visit to the Eastern Neck NWR in Rock Hall Maryland. I am sharing some of the birds we saw, the trails and views of the river and bay.


My mosaic above shows a lot of the birds we saw during our visit to the wildlife refuge. Top row: American Black ducks, Common Mergansers, Ring-billed Gull. Second row are the Turkey Vultures, Bald Eagle and Black Vultures. The third row Great Blue Heron in flight, Tundra Swan group, Tundra Swan. Bottom row is a Northern Cardinal, Flock of Canada Geese, various Gulls.


For Teresa Friday's Hunt one of two images for the week's favorite above: The Tubby Cove boardwalk.

Thanks to Teresa for hosting.

Ida said...

Great fences here today, those boardwalks are really lovely. Always a treat to see the different birds, especially the eagles.

I did the GF in reverse order today and had not heard about Tina. I just went to her blog and there is a post today. Am I missing something about her passing?

The Yum List said...

Sorry to hear of the loss to the community. RIP Tina.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh Eileen, I just went to Facebook and saw about Tina. Your tribute post here is lovely. I was in shock when I saw it and made my first comment as I hadn't been on FB For a couple of days. I will miss her blog. We just never know. You are so right...live each day.

Jim said...

Hi Eileen ~~ I like your Bald Eagles. The picture is nicely taken also. They look so majestic there in the tree. The airplane was really neat being there with the eagles.
Looks like you had a good walk out in the wildlife refuge. This is a good time of the year to get the lay of the land when there isn't so much foliage. I originated that saying for me up in the New Hampshire woods when we lived there.

Our photos said...

Owwww, that is a wonderful series !
