I got out out briefly yesterday, and didn’t really find much. I was surprised at the lack of birds at Quiet Waters.
I went back to Blackwater this morning, and the Eagles were in good form, but it was cold and windy and I couldn’t get close to much else.

There’s always a few Great Blue Herons fishing at Blackwater.
Northern Shovelers and Mallards are the dominant ducks at the moment.

I was too close to this Bald Eagle when he flew from his perch.
