Cooper’s Hawk at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center

More perfect weather. I started at Terrapin, which was once gain very slow. I understand the high water, but I wonder where the song birds are.

I moved on to CBEC after an hour or two, and it was slower than last week, but still productive. The Cooper’s Hawk was the first I’ve seen in a while, and an Indigo Bunting made a surprise appearance. I was lucky to find the Tricolored Heron, who was well hidden for a while.

There were at least 8 Great Blue Herons fishing in the lake.
