More Bombay Hook NWR


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.

Hello, I am sharing more images from our daytrip to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. I have some fence scenes with the birds and some sky shots starting with our sunrise.


Before leaving on our outing I saw a pretty pink sunrise and the moon setting over our house.



Now, we are at Bombay Hook NWR in Delaware enjoying a Glossy Ibis skywatch.




A pretty sky, white puffy clouds and Egrets everywhere.


An Egret fence, I believe most of them are the Great Egrets. Except I cut off a Great Blue Heron on the right side of the photo.


Another view of the Egret fence with the Great Blue Heron crashing their party.


Sorry these are not the best photos taken thru my car window but above is a Great Blue Heron perched on a fence near the Finnis Pool, Bombay Hook NWR.


It really was an Egret day, the few dark spots in the grasses are the Glossy Ibis, click for a larger image and better view.


And last but not least is the moon taken on Aug 7th.  I hope you enjoyed my fence and sky shots and the birds of Bombay Hook NWR. Thanks in advance for stopping by and for your nice comments.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check for more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.    I wish everyone a happy day and weekend ahead..

    I rather like the 'drive by' photos; as if we are with you in the car! I like, also, that in each part of the earth, we all see a different area of the moon - that is a super shot! YAM xx

  28. I love that Egret fence...when I see the long-legged wading birds perched on fences it strikes me so funny. No matter how many times I see it. I sometimes wonder how they balance their big body on the long skinny legs.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi Eileen, that's a lovely blue sky with white clouds and the white spots of Egrets everywhere! Love the Egret fence with the Great Blue Heron too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The pretty pink clouds were a nice start to your post and trip.
    I think it would be neat to see Ibis flying.
    Loved your Egret/Heron shots. I liked the "party crasher" shot of the Egret/Heron on the fence.

  31. Dear sweet little Egrets you are just a delight to see! Eileen I really like your whisper of a fence and all those little egrets living it up! Truly delightful to see.

  85. Hi Eileen, I missed this post so this is a catch-up comment. First, thanks for taking time to respond to my request for a hawk ID. No worries.. the pics weren't great and even with my book, I can't seem to decide what it was. As for this post, that sky and moon are magnificent. Such fun, sometimes, rising early for a special day like this. So many Egrets. Wow! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
