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.

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