It’s been slow for a few days, and the weatherman says the next few days will suck, so I decided to give Blackwater one last try.
It’s definitely Eagle time of year, and I saw many, as well as plenty of ducks. I also took a trip to DeCoursey Bridge again, in hopes of finding fishing Eagles. There were actually many Eagles there, mostly juveniles, but they weren’t doing much fishing. The Pelicans were still there, though, and I got a couple of pics.
At least 6-8 juvenile Bald Eagles were hanging out at DeCoursey bridge.
Red Winged Blackbirds were very active.
Many Snow Geese are still in residence.
These Green Winged Teal were at CBEC yesterday.
I saw many Great Blue Herons on this visit.
Northern Shovelers are still the most common duck.
Tundra Swans will be gone very soon.
Why do Killdeer hang out on the road surface so often?
American White pelicans are fond of Blackwater.
You can be nearly certain the Hooded Mergansers will spook when you get close.
