I went back to the Eastern Shore this morning, in hopes of finding some wading birds, and had a little luck. Previous year’s photos suggest they start appearing about this time, and it appears to be so.
The BC Night Heron is the first record for this bird at Terrapin!
CBEC was a little slow, but I’m going back soon, and I’ll bet things improve rapidly.
This Great Egret was the only wading bird at CBEC.
This Orchard Oriole was also at CBEC.
A flock of 8 Snowy Egrets flew over at Terrapin.
This Red Winged Blackbird is a female.
I found three Green Herons at CBEC.
I didn’t realize this Great Blue Heron had caught a snake until I uploaded the image.
Belted Kingfishers have been very scarce this year.
It was still a little dark when I found this Black Crowned Night Heron.
This Turtle was crossing the path at Terrapin.
