I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday
During our overnight visit to the Delaware Shores in May we stopped at Bombay Hook NWR. These are some birds seen during our visit to the wildlife refuge.
We saw a large group of shorebirds are Bombay Hook on this day, the groups include Dowitchers and you can see Dunlins with their cute black bellies.
You can there are various beak colors and the size, that we saw various species of Egrets. Mostly the Great Egret and the Snowy Egrets. Most of the 13,000 acres are tidal salt marsh and is one of Delaware's most valuable wildlife habitat.
Eastern Kingbird, an asy way to id the kingbird is to see the end of the tail feathers. It looks like it was dipped in white paint.
I am not sure if this is a juvenile Indigo Bunting or a juvenile Blue Grosbeak. We saw both of the adults all the around the refuge on this day.
Above is a pretty male Blue Grosbeak, the chestnut color on its wing helps to id this bird.
The wild irises are beautiful at Bombay Hook!
