It was much cooler the last couple of days, but too windy yesterday. I set out early for Blackwater, and it was OK, if not spectacular. Egrets, Herons and Sandpipers just aren’t out in numbers yet.
I did find a few parents with chicks, some Eagles and Herons, but the star today was the Red headed Woodpecker. They were very active. including mating and fetching food for their chicks. I was hoping for more variety, but it didn’t happen.
I don’t usually talk about such things, but I ran over a Raccoon this morning. There were three, right in the middle of the road. It was still quite dark, and there wasn’t anything I could do. I haven’t hit many animals in a car, and it wasn’t a good way to start the day.
