Ruddy Duck at Kent Narrows.

Yesterday I made the trip to Blackwater, and it was disappointing.  All the water along Wildlife Drive was frozen, so there weren’t any ducks or other wading birds, which is a big deal at Blackwater. I decided to try Hooper’s Island after that, which was also a waste of time. I made a brief stop at Thomas Point as well.

Today I started at Possum Point, which didn’t look promising, so I went to Sandy Point, where I got some good dawn shots.

Kent Narrows was next, and I did very well there. Lots of good birds in good light.
