I got to Blackwater just in time for a couple of sunrise shots, and the resident birds got active right away. A Red Tailed Hawk initially eluded me, but I found him later and got a couple of good looks.
The water along WIldlife Drive was ice-free, unlike my last visit. There weren’t as as many ducks as I wanted, but there was plenty of variety. Swans and Geese were abundant, but difficult to photograph due to distance.
I made a brief stop at Oakley Street, where the water was spraying over the wall. A good day, with good light.
