About two weeks ago, several birders from the University of Delaware, including yours truly, participated in the annual Bombay Hook NWR Christmas Bird Count. Our count area, which I described in this post, consisted of the Raymond Pool, Boardwalk Trail, the Visitor’s Center, and various other areas. We started at 3:45 in the morning and finished around 1:00 in the afternoon. We tallied 67 species in which most are listed below. In addition to the eBird checklist below, we had Barn and Eastern Screech-Owls early in the morning. Highlights in BOLD below.
