More from Bombay Hook NWR

Hello,

Not much happening around here lately so I have a few more photos to share from our visit to Bombay Hook NWR and some from our ride home.


An Osprey flying by holding a fish.



Below are my not so good attempts at fence photos,  a GB Heron behind a fence and some egrets with a juvenile BC Night Heron all standing on a fence.


More egrets on the fence, also hard to see but the dark looking bird on the fence is a juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron. A few more Egrets perched in a distant tree.




A pretty summer day and sky at the wildlife refuge.


This may look like a repeat but I took a lot of photos of the Egrets seen along the wildlife drive at Bombay Hook NWR.


On the way home we decided to stop for an ice cream at the Brooms Bloom Dairy. They had a sunflower field you could walk through, if you do not mind the bees. I like the flowers and clouds in the shot below.


Enter at your own risk, there were bees all around the flowers.




The farm, barns and silos at the Brooms Bloom Dairy


While eating our ice cream, I took this blurry shot of the silos.


Below a drive by shot on the way home, a barn and fence scene.



As always I hope you enjoyed your visit and my post. I appreciate your nice comments. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Here is a list of linky parties for part of the week, I hope to see you there.

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences.
Thank you to Sylvia, Yogi and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.
Thanks to Tom the host of The Barn Collective

  4. Nothing prettier than a field of sunflowers on a beautiful day! Nice!

    I laughed at that shot of the GB heron behind the chain link--reminded me of a prison scene (and no, I've not been-LOL!)

  11. Hi Eileen, I love the flock of birds perched on a fence; great take on Good Fences, (lol!) It all looks so clean and neat there; the silos, barns and fields. It would be a pleasure to walk through the sunflower fields if you aren't allergic to bees. (I'm not, so I'd enjoy it!) Have a great day. Jo

  17. I enjoyed your pics . . .
    And the Sunflower fields . . .
    I would have been leery to enter the bee sanctuary . . .
    And would have joined you for ice cream . . .
    Our extremely hot summer has made ice cream a much too frequent treat . . .
    I need a cooler fall with more walking!

  50. If I had to pick my favorite of all these images posted I would say the sunflowers. Those flowers are so happy looking. The sign posted saying watch out for bees is different...never seen that before. Have a great week-end.

  57. Beautiful photographs. I loved your sunflower fields. I remember as a child where we lived was a sunflower field and our mother warned my brother and I to stay away so of course we had to go walk through it. It was covered in bees all buzzing away and we would walk slowly through it and they ignored us. What a feeling.

  62. Wow--that is a LOT of Egrets!! Must be a great place for them!! I have yet to see a Black-crowned Heron... maybe soon? What a great fun place to walk through... tho if they have to warn about the bees, there must be some truth to that! Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
