American Robin at Ellen O. Moyer Park.

I started this morning at Truxtun Park, where the water was so high the bridge was partly submerged. Good light and a few good birds.

Ellen O. Moyer Park is a small park at 7228 Edgewood Road in Annapolis. I’ve been there several times in the last few years without finding much, but I gave it another shot this morning. The flooding was so bad downtown that traffic out of town was backed up everywhere, so it made sense to stay local.

This park has a tall wooded hill and a good waterfront vista, so I’ll keep trying.

The water was very high at Truxtun, and this Double Crested Cormorant was almost at the end of the creek.

I’ve seen a lot of hawks at Truxtun, but they don’t always pose as well.
