Port Penn

I was scheduled to attend a historic town walk in Port Penn and planned extra time to get in some birding. The Route 9 corridor in Delaware is unbelievable with numerous wildlife areas including Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Although I was limited on time I was able to visit Augustine Wildlife Area, Augustine Beach, Woodland Beach Wildlife Area and Little Creek Wildlife Area. I have been trying to find smaller birds but the big ones like Bald Eagles (saw 10 today), Hawks (saw 8 but was only able to photograph 4), geese, swans and ducks keep getting my attention. I did find a Red Bellied Woodpecker and a Golden-crowned Kinglet along with the usual, Red-winged Blackbird, Cardinal and Northern Mockingbird. It was a great day – partly sunny and ended up with temps of 53 degrees. My bird total for 2017 is now 62.

I know this is a horrible picture but they were way off shore and the wind was blowing so hard I could hardly stand up. Wigeon in the foreground.
