Tree Swallows at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

I made the usual rounds this week, including a trip to Bombay Hook. It’s still slow, but a few of the regulars posed well enough, and I spent some time with the Tree Swallows at CBEC to try for flight shots.

Bombay Hook was good enough, even though there were no really exciting finds. I managed to turn 75 this week, which is an accomplishment all in itself.
