American White Pelicans at Blackwater NWR.

I got out yesterday and found nothing worthwhile.  Migration is slowing and the ducks aren’t here yet.

I tried Blackwater this morning, and it was slow, but worthwhile. Lots of Eagles, a few Egrets and Herons and  plenty of Terns still hanging out. Perfect weather.

I drove very close to this Great Blue Heron and photographed it through the window.

Two Chickadees were playing in the grass and ignored my presence.

Savannah Sparrow 2017-5

I often see Savannah Sparrows on Wildlife Drive, but it’s hard to get close enough for an image.

This Caspian Tern was on Key Wallace Drive.

These American White Pelicans were too far away, but worth a try.
