Happy Thankful Thursday!

Happy Thankful Thursday!


These are the end of my Ocean City photos, the sunrise on our last morning Feb 6. We were up early to see the sunrise and check out the Ocean City Inlet in case any new sea birds showed up. Then we headed to Blackwater Nat'l Wildlife refuge on the way home.  I will share the wildlife refuge photos in another post. 






Thankful for another day and a beautiful sunrise. 



Most of the sea ducks were at the opposite side of the inlet, I could see the Common Eider, Long-tailed Ducks, Bufflehead Ducks and a couple of Red-breasted Mergansers.


The beach is a hang out spot for various gulls and pigeons. 


I always miss the Dovekie and Razorbill sightings by a couple of days or even hours. But, we did see the Ruddy Turnstones hanging in the same spot. 




I am thankful for my hubby who enjoys nature as much as I do.
For each day I am Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  23. Beautiful sky photos, and I always enjoy seeing birds!
    I saw what I think were two female Buffflehead Ducks yesterday, but they were too far away to get clear photos. I tried sneaking up closer to the edge of the pond, but they saw me immediately and flew away. I have never seen them before, but I am pretty sure that is what they were. Maybe I will get another chance before they go back North.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
