The weather guessers called for sunny, today, and it was:for about an hour, after which it was quite cloudy.
There were plenty of decent birds at Blackwater, but the poor light meant marginal images in some cases.
I made another stop at Oakley Street in hopes of some better images, and did OK.
There were 50 or so Tundra Swans.
Bald Eagles seem to getting more active as nesting season approaches.
Another nice surprise. Northern Flickers don’t often cooperate as well as this one did.
Several Great Blue Herons were fishing in the marsh.
Only a few Northern Shovelers were feeding in the marsh.
A dozen or so Common Mergansers were feeding in the marsh.
A couple of thousand Snow Geese are still hanging around.
I found this American Wigeon at Oakley Street.
There were hundreds of Canada Geese in the fields and on the water.
This juvenile Cooper’s Hawk was a nice surprise, as I haven’t seen many hawks recently.
