    Great count, Peter. I enjoyed your pictures and accounts. Keep enjoying nature. In Wilmington, DE, I’m too far from the shore to get all of the waterfowl action and there are twice as many waterfowl as inland species so my counts aren’t as numerous so I envy you a bit. 🙂

      Thanks! I’ve been in the Delaware area, and although you might not be close to shore, there are some really nice areas down there! Keep birding and soon enough your counts might get pretty big too!
