I decided to change my luck this morning and go to Patuxent South, which I haven’t visited for a year. A few friends have done well there, so I figured it was my turn.
It wasn’t bad, with plenty of birds to choose from, but still no warblers. I had the place basically to myself, and that’s always a bonus.
This Osprey was resting after a bout of fishing.
I found this Canada Goose with goslings at Patuxent North.
Several Wood Ducks were foraging in the shallow water.
Four or five Killdeer were feeding along the edge of the lake.
Four Double Crested Cormorants flew by early in the day.
This Bluebird was feeding his chicks.
Mallards flew over the lake several times.
This Lesser Yellowlegs was foraging alongside the geese.
Tree Swallows were also busy feeding their young.
