Bald Eagle at Terrapin Nature Park

A brief stop at Sandy Point revealed another banal sunrise, and I went straight to Terrapin.

The morning began slowly, but picked up after an hour, but I only found one interesting migrant, who didn’t stick around long enough for a photo.

I then made a quick stop at CBEC to try for some Tree Swallows, which turned out well.
