A beautiful day, with good light and good birds.
I started at Sandy Point, which was so foggy that I didn’t stay long.
Possum Point was next, and it was much better. The fog had almost cleared, and there were more birds than usual, including some Red Breasted Mergansers, who have been in short supply this year.
Jonas Green Park was deserted. Quiet Waters had a little activity and may get better soon.
I just barely caught this Mallard as he landed.
This Mourning Dove didn’t mind my presence at all.
This Double Crested Cormorant was feeding at Quiet Waters.
I was lucky to catch this Northern Flicker as he flew by.
This Song Sparrow was foraging right at my feet.
There are lots of Cardinals singing now.
Not a great shot, but this Tundra Swan is migrating later than most.
A small flock of Red Breasted Mergansers was feeding near the point.
Horned Grebes are very abundant now.
2-3 Bald Eagles are regulars at Possum Point.
The Osprey was very annoyed that this Bald Eagle was roosting near his nest.
The return of the Ospreys is in full swing.
