Tundra Swan at Blackwater NWR.

Between the weather and a lack of birds, it’s been a while since I had anything to post.

I got to Blackwater yesterday, and it wasn’t spectacular, but it was good enough. It’s still that time of year when the winter ducks haven’t arrived in any numbers, and most of the migrants have gone.

I did find some Swans, and the Eagles are still abundant, so I do have a few images worthy of my audience.
