These are some of my more recent neighborhood and backyard bird photos.  The Great Blue Herons are nesting in the woods across from my driveway, they can be seen daily and heard making their weird noises. I took some shots also from the nearby fire road of the GB Heron on the nest. We have our very own neighborhood heronry.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday,  I wish everyone a happy day!


I am sharing some photos from our visit to the Blackwater National Refuge in Cambridge Maryland. We stopped at the refuge on the way home from our visit to the beaches. 

The Snow Geese were seen in a field just outside the wildlife refuge.

This shot is not clear but I like seeing the wings of the Mallards and on the far right is a Northern Pintail.


Just a pretty view of the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

The Bald Eagles are plentiful at the wildlife refuge.


Some ducks and Tundra Swans.

I am sharing some backyard birds, the only critter I've seen lately in my backyard has been a bunny. The bunny is camera shy and runs off quickly.  My backyard birds are the Eastern Bluebird, House Finch and the Downy Woodpecker. These photos were taken on March 2nd.

Assateague National Seashore

Happy Thursday,  I wish everyone a happy day!


I am sharing some photos from our visit to Delaware & Maryland shores. Ocean City and I have some photos from Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. We made a few visits to the park during our trip to the beach. 

The first photo is the sunset from Ocean City Maryland inlet.

Not sure if these are Ring-billed Gulls, Ocean City, Md?

This may be a flock of Snow Buntings, we never did see them on the ground or close up. We just watched their flight pattern.

Saturday's Critters #222

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

These are photos from our short trip to Ocean City, Md and Assateague Nat'l Seashore.  I love seeing the wild ponies, we had some great sightings of the ponies and we also saw various birds.









We saw some of the horses while driving thru the campground. One horse walked up to the van's window, I think it was looking for food. We did not see it being fed, that is against the rules.



The Yellow-rumped Warblers were everywhere on the Assateague Island.

The Sanderlings were on the beach at Assateague.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, wishing everyone a great day! 

Slowly making my way back into blogland. 
I am sharing our trip to the Delaware and Maryland beaches on Feb 13-15. I have some photos of the beach and bridge at the Indian River Inlet State Park in Delaware. 








A distant photo with a  few Common Loons hanging around the beach and inlet.



A Loon and a female Merganser.



I hope you enjoyed my sky photos and the birds seen at the shore.



I am thankful for having our power turned back on after a windstorm. It was out from the morning of March 2nd to the evening of March 6th.
Thanks to all the linemen and power company workers.
