BIRDS FOUND AT PLEASURE HOUSE POINT NATURAL AREA IN VIRGINIA BEACH


We have recently found a most wonderful walk when visiting our family.  These Yellow Crowned Herons, the adult and the juvenile, also the Egret, finishing off with what I believe is a Clapper Rail, were found at the Pleasure House Point Natural Area in Virginia Beach, at low tide. 















































I am sharing with the following as they become available, with my thanks to our hosts Eileen, Misty, Anni and Stewart for these great memes. To visit other participants you can click on their names.

  13. I'm happy VA has bits of shoreline dedicated to the waterfowl who need all the help they can get. Do you know if this is a State Park?

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
