We have arrived at Killen's Pond State Park in Delaware where we will stay for three nights. We plan on birding Bombay Hook NWR tomorrow and Saturday if it doesn't rain to hard.
Here is our new Home….very wooded…no satellite reception..so Jeff had to go to Applebee's to watch the Celtics and the Bruins. My broadband Internet is a bit slow. I don't know if..or how long.. it will take to upload this post…
It was quite windy today so we decided not to drive to Bombay Hook. Instead we walked around the lake here at the park.
We walked halfway around the pond and had to walk on the road a bit..
There was a dam for the pond and lots of nesting Swallows on the concrete below the road..just over the dam.
Barn SwallowAlso at the Dam we saw this turtle hanging out on the concrete..sipping water..or eating ..I wasn't sure. I haven't had the time to ID this turtle yet..I think it is a Snapping Turtle.
Check out the video below and see for yourself..then tell me what you think the turtle is doing.. He's quite the cool looking fellow..check out his dinosaur tail. Of course this could be a female..I have no clue.
Eastern Kingbird hanging out in the Sun. Wish he would eat all the darn Mosquitoes.
Here we go with my bark fetish…love this one..I still haven't had time to ID this…the leaves look like an oak. I did a quick Google and decided I need to get a photo of the leaf for an ID.
Hope to have some Birdie pictures tomorrow..Trying out my new camera.
See ya…thanks for stopping by!
