Ocean City, Maryland
I am linking up with Skywatch Friday and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.
For this week's Good Fence and Skywatch Friday memes I am sharing some more photos from our Anniversary getaway in early May. A last minute decision we continued our getaway to Ocean City Maryland after we left Chincoteague Island Virginia. That is what is great about being retired we can make last minute trips and getaways. Early May the beaches were fairly empty and we had a choice of hotels to spend the night.
This is the sunrise before leaving Chincoteague Island NWR.
I know this is stretching the fence scene, but if you look closely you can see the wire fence ( just above the Oystercatcher's eye) at the dune nesting area for the Oystercatchers and the Piping Plovers.
With my great zoom I spotted a cute Piping Plover seen beyond the fence area at Chincoteague Island NWR
We left Chincoteague Island and went to the Ocean City inlet, a fence runs along side the rock jetty. It was a beautiful day to be at the beach.
How did this bird know I needed a fence shot? Is there too much fencing going on here?
According to the Maryland listserve the Sunset Park in Ocean City is always a happening spot to see some birds. Above is the Common Yellowthroated Warbler. For some reason it looks like there is a double or even a triple fence in this spot.
Also seen at the Sunset Park, one of my favorite bird species the Terns. I think these may be the Forster's Tern.
It was a full moon during our little getaway, it was nice seeing it rise over the ocean. I hope you enjoyed my post and photos. Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments.
