The sunrise didn’t look promising, so I stayed home until 6:30 and set out for Terrapin Nature Park. Terrapin is “iffy” in early Spring. You can do well, or just plain strike out. I didn’t find anything exciting, and moved quickly on to CBEC,
There’s still late ducks on the lake, along with a few geese. Eagles and Ospreys were active. We’ll have more migrants soon.
I’m getting better with Tree Swallows, but it’s not easy. A huge time sink if you get obsessed.
This Osprey’s nest is adjacent to the blind.
This Field Sparrow was a nice find. It’s not always easy to spot these little guys.
The Yellow Rump is one of our most common Warblers. This one is dressed for courting.
The Bald Eagle has strayed too close to the Crow’s nesting area.
I saw three Bald Eagles this morning. This one is a juvenile.
