I went to Artemesia with Graeme yesterday, and got virtually nothing. I hate wasting time like that, so I headed back to old reliable Blackwater this morning. I considered Bombay Hook, and may do that soon.
There’s not as many wading birds, but there’s still plenty of variety, and the Fox Squirrels are still cooperating.
Dawn at Blackwater.
I saw these Wild Turkeys as I was driving home.
There are still plenty of Great Egrets.
The Glossy Ibises are still foraging in the marsh.
A single Killdeer was in the road near Pool #1.
This Double Crested Cormorant was fishing at Maple Dam Road.
This Osprey seemed to be taking a break.
I’m not sure what this Bald Eagle was doing on the ground.
Red Winged Blackbirds are very common, but sometimes they pose well.
I spent some time looking for this Red Headed Woodpecker, and he landed right in front of me as I was giving up.
The Delmarva Fox Squirrels are still cooperating.
