Snow Goose at Blackwater NWR.

I went to Blackwater this morning, hoping the ice had melted. The marsh was ice free, but the ducks haven’t returned yet.

Still there were plenty of geese and a few eagles to make things interesting.

I made a stop at Oakley Street on the way home, and there was a decent crowd of ducks there.
