It’s been a slow couple of days. I got out to Sandy Point yesterday, after being rained out in the morning, and to Lake Artemesia the day before, but there hasn’t been much to see. A Blackwater trip was ruined by a deer hunt that I failed to see on the Blackwater web page.
I did OK today. Not a lot of birds, but a few good pics, especially of the Loon, one of my favorite birds.
I found this Northern Pintail at Blackwater.
Tundra Swans have arrived in good numbers.
I saw only three Canvasbacks.
This Mallard was also at Blackwater.
I’m seeing more Buffleheads now.
Ring-necked Ducks have a subtle beauty.
A few Surf Scoters were feeding at Thomas Point.
You can almost always find a Bald Eagle at Blackwater.
This Northern Harrier was more cooperative than most.
This Common Loon and two of his friends were hanging around the point this morning.
