Bald Eagle at Blackwater NWR.

It’s still a bit slow around here, so I journeyed to Blackwater this morning. It was quite nice for early November, and a few birds are trickling in. It’s not exciting yet. A few Pintails were around, but too distant, and only a few Sandpipers. Plenty of Mallards and Canada Geese, but not much else.
