Blackpoll Warbler at Quiet Waters.

I started at Sandy point this morning, looking for a colorful sunrise. I got nada. Gray, cloudy sky with no decent colors. I found no interesting birds on the beach, so I set out for Greenbury Point, which was also a bust. A lone Great Blue Heron at Possum Point provided one photo opp.

On to Quiet Waters. I tried a couple of favorite spots, and was getting ready to quit when I saw a couple of interesting looking small birds, and lucked into a mini-bonanza. A couple of warblers and other small birds made a dull  morning into something far more satisfying.
