These are photos from our Aug 16-17th overnight trip to Bombay Hook NWR and Dover Delaware. After our 2 and 1/2 hour drive we arrived at the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. It will always be one of my favorite places to see the birds. These are the birds I saw on the first day, we saw a family of Wild Turkeys, lots of Snowy and Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Glossy Ibis, American Avocets, Osprey and various shorebirds like the Dunlin, Dowitchers, Yellowlegs, Semipalmated Plovers and Sandpipers, Willets, Black Bellied Plovers and Mute Swans.
1. Below in the mosaic, top row is a family of Wild Turkeys, American Avocets and a guess at a Yellowlegs. Second row are the Snowy Egret and Great Egrets, Long-billed and Short Billed Dowitchers with a Black-bellied Plover, more Egrets with American Avocets and more shorebirds. Bottom row an Egret, Great Blue Heron and Canada Geese with Willets.
2. Forster's Tern, Semipalmated Plover, Caspian Tern with Gulls and Terns. Middle row is an Osprey, Swallows and Mute Swans. Bottom row is a Mute Swan, Egrets and Egrets with Glossy Ibis.
4. The American Avocets, a pretty shorebird has black and white wings, the breeding adult can have the burnt orange head.
I hope you enjoyed these photos from the Bombay Hook NWR .
