Project 365/311 – The Birds at Bombay Hook


It was one of those mornings, warmed by the early sun and the waning of the autumn leaves. When flocks of thousands of geese moved throughout the sky in search of warmer climes.

The large National Wildlife Refuge provides a safe haven for a wide variety of birds. Whether it be waterfowl, shorebirds, or song birds.

Watching the dancing aerial ballet of the large flocks of birds in the symphony of nature.



Looking closely within, several surprises were contained among the many.


Marbled Godwit (brown) Avocets (white) Tucked in sleeping Long Billed Dowitcher

Charming faces always willing to greet, but with curiosity for safety.

Snow Bunting – Port Mahon Road

For good reason as threats are always flying above.


Coopers Hawk – Female

Whether they fly high or dine low, these avian beauties are there if you look for them.

    • You are so sweet Bente, and I always love it when you stop by for a visit. Got to admit, I’ve become a total bird head. I love it though. Would you believe that this wildlife refuge was having controlled hunting conducted there the day after I was there?

      Too many deer I suppose.

  1. You got your snow bunting and so many more wonderful photos! Now I know what a Marbled Godwit looks like!

    But, I do believe that your “Northern Harrier” is really a female Cooper’s hawk, as the harriers have black wing-tips that contrast with mostly white underwings, but I could be wrong.
