The Sandy Point sunrise was good enough this morning. The weatherman had promised high heat and humidity, so I planned a short morning at Terrapin.
The wading birds are showing up in numbers now, and I even saw a couple of Least Sandpipers, ‘though they didn’t pose for me.

It’s been a quiet week… Seriously hot and humid here, and damn few birds wandering in front of my lens. I’ve managed to get out, but it doesn’t take much of this weather to make me long for the A/C at home.
This is always the slowest time of year, but I’ll soldier on ’til things improve.
The Marsh Pond at Terrapin.
This seems to be a juvenile Mockingbird.

Still plenty of Wood Ducks at Artemesia.
There’s never a shortage of Red Winged Blackbirds.

I wondered if this Snapping Turtle would interact with the Snowy Egret.
I found 9 Snowy Egrets at Terrapin.
Diamondback Terrapins are still laying eggs.
