More from Ocean City, Maryland

I am linking up with Camera Critters and I'd-rather-b-birdin

I wish everyone a HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY!


I have some more birds and critters from last weekend's visit to Ocean City, Maryland. The inlet is great place to see the seabirds and  this time we got to see a seal.


The Purple Sandpipers are cute birds and like to hang out on the jetty.


There were quite a few Common Loons hanging around the inlet.


The Ruddy Turnstones were also hanging around the rocks on the jetty.


It was fun watching this seal's head pop up out of the water.


I had a tough time trying to focus on the seal while he was floating with the moving tide. He/She does have the cutest face. I hope you enjoyed my Ocean City critters.

Thank you for visiting my post and blog. I also appreciate the comments.

To see more wonderful critters and photos please visit and join in on the fun with Misty Dawn's Camera Critters and to see some lovely birds check out  I'd-rather-b-birdin

Thanks to Misty Dawn for hosting Camera Critters and to Anni the host of I'd rather-b-birdin. I wish everyone a great weekend and Happy Birding.

  21. Oh, those ruddy turnstones, hanging around on the rocks. Probably they'll leave no stone unturned and then we'll never recognize the place. LOL
    Sweet sandpipers, Eileen, and I love the loons: they remind me of British Columbia.
    Of course your cute seal (sea lion? I can never remember which has ears and which hasn't) steals the show, as it was born to do.
    Loved this critter post.
