Snowy Egret at Terrapin Nature Park.

The weather has been sucky and migrating birds scarce. I’ve been getting out most days, but finding interesting birds has been a challenge.

Today was a little better, but it was very cloudy, which makes for lousy light. I ran into a couple of interesting people and spent as much time yakking as taking photos.
