Birding the Delaware-Maryland shore
If you have the time on Monday, I hope you can stop by and visit my monthly post on Birding is fun .
This weekend , hubby and I made a quick overnight trip to the Delaware and Maryland shores. We stopped in a few places birding along the way..
Our first stop was at Bombay Hook NWR. Above is a pair of Hooded Mergansers, Pied Billed Grebe, Coot, Yellowlegs and a GB Heron.
The Northern Shoveler is a pretty duck, love its colors and the cool bill..This duck seemed to be a common sight in Bombay Hook NWR.
Our second stop was Prime Hook NWR, a pretty view of the wetlands and the birds. Above are the Northern Shoveler, Osprey, GB Heron, Osprey nest, Yellowlegs and another Osprey.
My first sighting of the Osprey this year, seen in Port Mahon, Delaware.
A pretty view from the balcony of our OC room..
The Sea Ducks above are the male and female Surf Scoters.. The male has a colorful bill. They winter along the Atlantic Coast.
I hope you enjoyed this week's post on our getaway to the shore and seeing all the cool birds.
