Little Blue Heron at Terrapin Nature Park.

I got a late start this morning, and arrived at Terrapin about dawn. I found a White Eyed Vireo right away, but it was slow until I got to the marsh.

The Little Blue Heron was a very nice surprise, as I’ve only seen one other at Terrapin, and that one was a juvenile. There were a few other birds, but the light was poor and they were far away.

CBEC was slow as well I spent some time with the Tree Swallows, but the Wild Turkeys were the star. I don’t see them often, and they’re always fun.

Another good day after a short string of near dismal outings.
