Brown Pelican at Thomas Point State Park.

We had rain yesterday, so I only got out for a short time. Sandy Point was a waste of time, and I didn’t see much at Jonas Green Park, either.

I did OK at Quiet Waters, so I went back this morning. It’s very slow, but there’s a few good birds around if you’re willing to wait for the action.

I was undecided about going to Thomas Point because it’s still early in the season. I gave it a try and was rewarded with two Brown Pelicans who flew by as I arrived. A Loon and a Pileated Woodpecker made for a decent day.

This Gadwall was at the pond across from Jonas Green. You can almost always find ducks there.

My timing was perfect to find these Brown Pelicans. A couple of minutes later and I would have missed them.
