October visit to Blackwater NWR & Chincoteague NWR (cont.)

From Blackwater, we traveled an hour and a half to Chincoteague NWR. The weather turned much cooler with the rain on the way, but we warmed up riding our bikes around. We saw many birds here as well. The snow geese were just starting to arrive. Here's just a few images from my 2 days spent at Chincoteague:

A juvenile black-crowned night heron.

The endangered Delmarva fox squirrel.

The tiny Sika deer.

Great Egret hunting.

The famous Chincoteague ponies that run wild on the island.

Evening on the refuge; the Assateague Lighthouse is in the distance.
