Bombay Hook

On our way to and from Chincoteague we stopped at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge | U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service ( in Delaware. The drive through is excellent. The place was full of migrating shorebirds. The first thing I saw was a Virginia Quail on the road. Then a frog by the car at our first stop. The pictures aren’t great but they show a couple of the best birds.
