It’s been nearly three weeks since I posted anything, a record, I think. I’ve been getting out most days, quitting early in the heat, but not finding much inspirational. I’m also trying to save money on expenses, and the car eats a lot of gas.
Today was much better, and I think we’ll have good luck for a while, as migration seems to be well under way.
I’ve never seen a YC Night Heron in MD before, and there were several other Herons as well as a Baltimore Oriole.
Morning at Possum Point.
Most years I see many Eastern Kingbirds at this time of year.
I didn’t see Great Crested Flycatchers as often as in previous years.
This Baltimore Oriole is migrating South.
There are still many Ospreys in the area.
I’ve been seeing 3-4 Green Herons every morning.
Goldfinches will probably be around all year.
Thi Chipping Sparrow was at Quiet Waters.
I’ve heard Belted Kingfishers at CBEC many times, but they’re tough to photograph.
Juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Heron, called “rare” by Ebird.
Graeme and I went to CBEC early this morning to catch the sunrise and give some photos to the Center for use in their upcoming fundraising auction. We were able to catch Dr. Wink at home and left the framed photos with her.
We got the best look yet at the Tri Colored Heron who’s been hanging around, as well as some good egrets and Ospreys.
I’ve got plenty of CBEC shots to include, as the weather has been OK all week.
Morning in The Marsh.
The Snowy Egrets at CBEC seem to find plenty of food.
Forster’s Terns are still feeding daily.
This is a relatively rare Tri Colored Heron. They’ve been regular visitors for two or three years.
A Great Egret flies over the lake.
The Osprey chicks are growing fast.
I found this Yellow Warbler at Greenbury Point.
This Caspian Tern was imitating a Skimmer at Lake Knapp.
I’ve seen a lot of turtles recently.
