Tinicum (Philly), Bombay Hook, Conowingo

On a business trip managed a few hours birding at Tinicum (Philly), Bombay Hook and Conowingo Dam. Saw the following 60 odd common species (plus presumed scarlet tanager, american redstart, cliff swallow and coopers hawk) - thanks to Dennis Brennan at Tinecum for showing me around.
