Bird Photos / Dowitchers

Last Update: 6/15/2016

Joyce and I saw these birds on the Port Mahon road near Bombay Hook, DE on May 27th, 2006. We were on a field trip with the Baltimore Bird Club. It is very hard to tell the two types of Dowitchers apart, so I will lump them together here, for now.

I saw these birds on the Port Mahon road on July 3rd, 2006. The first one looks like a Long Billed to me- check out that long bill! The other birds in the photos are Laughing Gulls.
