Brown Headed Nuthatch at Blackwater NWR.

It’s been a while since I posted anything. The recent hurricane and many days of rain and and severe clouds have kept me from getting out very much, and when I did get out there wasn’t much to see. It’s been  a warm Summer, and migration seems later than usual.

I’m posting images from several place I’ve been to recently, including Terrapin, Wooton’s landing,  Sandy Point, Greenbury Point, Quiet Waters and Schoolhouse Pond.
