Belted Kingfisher at Terrapin Nature Park

I started the day at Sandy Point, looking for some sunrise images and did OK.

Since I’ve had such good luck, I went back to Terrapin and CBEC this morning. Terrapin was disappointing, with few of the regular birds appearing, but the Kingfisher made up for it.

Snowy Egrets are still flocking to CBEC, and the Tricolors are hanging in there. In general, there were fewer birds than on previous days.
