Cloudy and a bit gloomy this morning, so I went back to Possum Point in order to be close to home if I got rained out. I’m also hoping to start seeing some migrating birds, but nothing has shown up yet.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is readily visible from Possum Point, and I frequently take a few shots.
This Great Blue Heron was fishing right at the point, and I frightened him off, but managed to get this quick shot.
A large flock of Starlings flew continuously over the Nature Center.
I see Double Crested Cormorants occasionally at Possum Point, but there were several fishing and flying over the last couple of days.
There’s something interesting in the way the Crow’s body shape matches the curve of the limb.
There were far fewer Purple Martins than yesterday, but I assume the others have begun the flight South.
This House Finch has found a very nice breakfast.
This Carolina Wren was singing a very (To me) peculiar song.
This very small (And, I assume, young) deer stayed in the area for over half an hour.
This shabby looking Cardinal must be molting.
The Goldfinches will be leaving soon also.
There were several Bluebird juveniles flying in and out of this nesting box, and it’s not much of a stretch to guess they were born there.
Eastern Kingbirds often sit very still, but if you wait long enough they’ll give you a decent pose.
