OK, it’s a Skunk. Mephitis mephitis looks better in a title.
There’s still not much going on around here, so I headed back to Blackwater again. I can’t complain about the results, although I wasn’t really looking for mammals.
I actually did OK with the birds, and I suppose I’ll have to go back soon.
This Great Blue Heron flew in early and landed very near to me.
This young Osprey is trying out his new wings.
The Osprey chicks are doing well.
I spotted this Brown headed Nuthatch while I was looking for hummingbirds.
This Mallard was taking a morning nap.
Red Winged Blackbirds are singing all along Wildlife Drive.
I found only a single Killdeer.
Several Eastern Kingbirds were flycatching along Wildlife Drive.
Far fewer Great Egrets are feeding than did last week.
The Delmarva Fox Squirrel appeared as I was leaving.
This daytime Fox seemed right at home posing for me.
I’ve only seen two Skunks in my photography career (They’re nocturnal).,
