It’s been two weeks since I posted anything here. This is the worst time of year for birding in MD. Most birds have finished nesting, some are even heading South by now. The Tree Sparrows at CBEC seemed to vanish overnight.
It’s also been damn hot, and I’ve been quitting early for several days.
In any case, I found a few decent birds, and here’s the images.
The marsh is filled with the sound of Red Winged Blackbirds.
Many Purple Martins are still nesting.
Many Great Egrets were visible in the pools.
I counted 40 or more Glossy Ibises.
The center bird appears to be a Little Blue Heron.
I saw only one Eastern Kingbird today.
Two Great Crested Flycatchers were foraging in the marsh.
This Great Blue Heron seems to have lost his head.
American Avocets started showing up an hour after dawn.
Many Forster’s Terns were feeding in the pools.
