Birding Landscapes – Bombay Hook and Slaughter Beach Delaware
I had the opportunity to help lead a student trip to Washington DC last week. We took art students from BYU-Idaho and visited art museums, and other sites in Washington DC. After the students went home I stayed to make some photographs of birding landscapes in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
My first visit was a couple of birding destinations in Delaware. Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge protects one of the largest remaining expanses of tidal salt marsh in the mid-Atlantic region.
Slaughter Beach is a stronghold for Red Knots, which arrive in the spring to gorge themselves on huge concentrations of Horseshoe Crab eggs.
