White Crowned Sparrow at Blackwater NWR.

It was sunny and calm, as predicted, but it wasn’t a prolific kind of day. I remember thinking a few years ago that migration seemed to be moving slowly.

Eagles were everywhere, but wading birds and warblers were seriously sparse.

The White Crowned Sparrows were a welcome sight,  perhaps a harbinger of better things to come.
