Chipping Sparrow at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

I got to Sandy Point about an hour before sunrise, which is the best time to see the colors when the elements line up, but they didn’t cooperate today. I’ve spent several mornings in the parking lot this year waiting for a colorful dawn that never arrived.

Terrapin was the next stop, and it was OK, but not nearly as active as yesterday.

I haven’t been to CBEC for  while, so I gave it a try, but it was really slow. There’s plenty of distant ducks, but none close enough to photograph. A nice butterfly made up for the lack of birds.
