With good weather promised, I decided to try a trip to Blackwater this morning. It wasn’t any kind of bonanza, but I did find a few interesting birds.
There’s still only a few wading birds compared to a few weeks ago, and I don’t know what to make of that.
I found only a single Greater Yellowlegs.
This appears to be a Field Sparrow.
Killdeer are started to appear in larger numbers.
Several Eastern Kkingbirds are stiil flycatching on Wildlife Drive.
A mixed flock of Tree and Barn Swallows was foraging along Wildlife Drive.
Severall Great Blue Herons were fishing in the marsh.
This Bald Eagle was making a lot of noise.
This Great Egret had much of the marsh to himself.
Forster’s Terns like to hang out on theses pilings.
These Brown Headed Nuthatches appeared to be having a lot of fun.
This Delmarva Fox Squirrel was just barely in range.
This Fox was prowling around the visitor center.
