It’s still a bit slow around here, so I journeyed to Blackwater this morning. It was quite nice for early November, and a few birds are trickling in. It’s not exciting yet. A few Pintails were around, but too distant, and only a few Sandpipers. Plenty of Mallards and Canada Geese, but not much else.
Dawn at Sandy Point.
Several Northern Pintails were feeding in the marsh.
This Great Blue Heron flew right across my path.
Many Canada Geese were moving around the refuge.
I saw 100 or more Mallards.
This might be the first Cardinal I’ve ever photographed at Blackwater.
The usual Double Crested Cormorants were at the Key Wallace bridge.
Two Greater Yellowlegs were foraging along Wildlife Drive.
I found only a few Bald Eagles.
