I’ve heard some good reports from Blackwater, so I made the trip this morning. I didn’t see any rarities, but the mammals came to my rescue and made a decent showing.
I made three or four loops of Wildlife Drive, including stops at the Visitor Center and The Tubman Center for Hummingbirds and Sparrows. I also checked out the Key Wallace bridge, but there wasn’t much there as yet.
This Rabbit ignored my presence.
The feeder at the Visitor attracted many Ruby Throated Hummingbirds.
THis Osprey has found a nice fish.
Red Headed Woodpeckers will be audible all Summer.
This Red Winged Blackbird was looking for bugs at the Visitor Center.
I saw about 15 Bald Eagles this morning.
A single American White Pelican paddled slowly by on Wildlife Drive.
I see Delmarva Fox Squirrels often, but they don’t usually pose so well.
This Sika Deer was foraging near the blind.
