I posted a lot of photos.. so click on  them  to view a larger size.

Celeste said...

Wow what a wonderful birdy spot, I can totally see why you had such a great time. Beautiful photos.

Chris Rohrer said...

You have some truly magnificent birds in your area. That Indigo Bunting is gorgeous. They are spotty here in Arizona. Our common bunting right now is the Varied which is also quite beautiful....but one dare not get too close or they fly off!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi There, I'm back after a big birthday week. Trying to catch up a little on my blogging.

Great group of birds, Eileen. Looks like the Bombay Hook NWR is a great place to see lots of them.
Hugs,

Crafty Green Poet said...

great selection of birds, the avocets are beautiful...

Anni said...

Stupendous Eileen!!! I hope to some day see a glossy ibis, but I think they're more or less a Florida bird, but I read that the white faced found here in Texas are quite similar.

LOVED the blue grosbeak sitting/posing so pretty!!

Thanks for linking up this weekend at the Bird D'Pot!! Have a great week ahead.
