Wild Turkey at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

I chased a Red Headed Woodpecker in Crofton yesterday. These birds don’t usually nest in AA county, so it was a nice find.

I was going to Sandy Point this morning, but I elected to sleep in and try CBEC instead. The next 4-6 weeks will be slow, so I may spend more time looking for bugs.

I skipped the back path at CBEC  because the insects are so ferocious. I did well enough, finding more birds than usual. I also made a short stop at Greenbury Point where I found a couple of birds.
