I got a better location on the Hooper’s Island Owl, so I made the 80+ mile trek this morning and got a decent look. Not as good as I wanted, but ‘twil do.
There were many waterfowl in the water along the road and the bridge as well.
I made a couple of rounds at Blackwater also, but there wasn’t much to see.
Northern Shovelers are still present in good numbers.
There’s still a few hundred Snow Geese at Blackwater.
This Canvasback was at Hooper’s Island.
Many Horned Grebes were feeding near shore.
This Horned Grebe is in breeding plumage.
Several Common Loons were nearby as well.
Many small flocks of Buffleheads were around.
I didn’t get as close as I wanted to this Snowy Owl.
