Happy Spring!!

I have more images from our recent trip to Maryland's Eastern shore and Ocean City MD.  It was good to get away and we were outside walking or driving much of the trip so we could do our social distancing.  

1. The following images are all from the Indian River Inlet in Delaware, not far from the Maryland line. Click on photos for larger viewing.  





2. The Red-throated Loon is similar to the Common Loon but has white in front of their eyes.




3. The Long-tailed Ducks are beautiful. 




4. Double-crested Cormorants, I was told there was a Great Cormorant hanging out on this tower too. 






5. Female Common Eider with one adult male. The adult male also has the long nose but is white on the back. 




6. Common Eider, male and females. Possible Red-throated Loon second on the right side of the photo. 




7. Sanderlings on the jetty.  






8. Loons and Long-tailed Ducks.



9. Various images from the Indian River Inlet, Delaware. 




Our grandson Wyatt is just over a month old. He is growing quickly and is doing well.  He is loved and so adorable.

 Below the top photo is of our son and our dog Daisy, Daisy was a guardian over our son Brian. Bottom photo is our son's dog Nibbles watching over Wyatt.

Saturday Critters # 378

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


Hello and happy Saturday!
 
 If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

Spring forward, YAY.  Tonight, I will be happy to change my clocks an hour ahead for more daylight.   I am sharing some birds hubby and I saw during a recent visit to Maryland's Eastern shore. We drove the wildlife drive at Bombay Hook NWR along the way.  We are still keeping our safe distance due to COVID, we felt safe not having to get out of our car. So these photos are all taken from my car on the wildlife drive.

1. On the road that leads to the wildlife drive entrance, we noticed what must have been thousands of Snow Geese. 




2. The Snow Geese were far back on the field, I tried zooming in for a closer look.



3. I usually try to check out the fields along side the road leading into the wildlife refuge. Various birds have been seen in the past, this day we saw what I am guessing is a female Horned Lark.




4. At the beginning of the wildlife drive we noticed two Bald Eagles. It looks one was having a conversation with the other eagle. 





5. Further along the wildlife drive we saw the Northern Harrier, Yellow-rumped Warbler and a few Eastern Bluebirds. 





6.  The Great Blue Herons were seen all along the drive, a Snow Goose hidden in the grasses, a second Great Blue Heron seen close to a Belted Kingfisher. 




7.  Yellowlegs, Lesser or Greater?  






8.  Great Egret with a Great Blue Heron.





9.  A pair of Common Mergansers. 



10. A group of Tundra Swans all tucked in with a  couple of Canada Geese.







I hope you enjoyed my birds and post this week. I will have  more post on the bird sightings from this little trip to Ocean City Maryland. I am looking forward to seeing your critter post and photos.

1. Looking out my dining room window, I found a few male Cardinals, can you find the lone Goldfinch? On the bottom of the mosaic is the female Red-bellied Woodpecker with a Starling, in the bottom middle are various birds and bottom right is the Hairy Woodpecker. 




2.  Looking out my front window from my exercise bike, there were five Blue Jays motivating me to go one more mile..



3. During one of our recent snow days, I saw lots of Cardinals, Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrows and the Starlings.



4. In the back part of our yard, I have been seeing the Pileated Woodpecker at our wood pile.  




5. The Cardinals do look so bright and pretty with a snowy background. Far bottom left is a female Cardinal and far right is the Goldfinch.



As I type this post it is so cold out, a mere 14° early in the morning.

We had a snowy February, I will be happy to see winter come to an end.  Take care, stay safe and warm.  See you next Saturday!
