With excellent weather promised, I decided to give Blackwater one last try for the season, and it worked out OK.
Most of the ducks are gone, the Eagles are very active, and a few Sandpipers are showing up.
Now it’s time to start looking for warblers.
This Northern Harrier was just a little too far away.
Greater Yellowlegs often forage in the marsh.
Several Double Crested Cormorants were fishing alongside the Terns.
Ospreys are very busy at this time of year.
This juvenile Bald Eagle ia about three years old.
Many Bald Eagles live at Blackwater.
The sight and sounds of Red Winged Blackbirds ring throughout the marsh.
Two weeks ago there were thousands of Snow Geese. Today there was only one.
These Forster’s Terns were at Maple Dam Road.
