On a cloudy day at Bombay Hook NWR

There are three wildlife areas within about 3 hours drive of home; Blakcwater NWR, Prime Hook NWR, and Bombay Hook NWR. The latest reports were that only about 1,000 Snow Geese were at Blackwater while at Bombay Hook and Prime Hook the estimates ranged upwards of 100,000 Snow Geese in each refuge. I charged the camera batteries, made sure the SD cards were empty and headed to the closer of the two refuges with the largest population, Prime Hook NWR near Smyrna, Delaware. part of the drive was slow, dense fog littered the road making the trip a bit slower than normal. By the time I arrived at the refuge the fog had lifted so the weather there could be called heavy overcast for most of the morning, but afternoon there were some bright spots. But there were plenty of Snow Geese and other birds, mainly a variety of ducks. I won’t bother adding more comments, just some of the photos I think are worth showing..And a short video below all the still photos.
