|We will post some of our favorite, more recent pictures here first!
|5/24/11 White Clay Creek SP, DE Nothing cuter than chicks in the Spring time - in this case Mallard chicks.
Also caught a Lincoln's Sparrow in the woods.
|5/25/11 Checking on shorebirds around Prime Hook NWR, DE: A Black-bellied Plover (Breeding Plumage)
was out catching worms; a Snowy Egret gave us a look; and a Black Skimmer flock was a delight to watch!
Also: Dunlin and Redknot along with a Laughing Gull (light direction wasn't the best).
|5/28/11 Quick stop at the shore and Bombay Hook NWR: Blue Grosbeak (m and either f or 1st year m) and
Eastern Kingbird - they're back! A Great Egret flock was gobbling tadpoles faster than the camera could
shoot. Also: Ruddy Turnstone , a rather ragged Red-winged Blackbird, and a Snowy Egret showing off.
|6/2/11 Brief stop at Assateague island, MD on the way back from a NC trip. Sorry birds, the stars of the
show were the new wild pony foals! The whole troop (OK herd) walked up to the camera. Did catch an
American Oystercatcher , a Clapper Rail , a Red-winged Blackbird, and a Willet as well.
