Tricolored Heron at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

We’ve had another slow week. I can’t fault the weather, but I’d like to see more migrants.  How many times have I written that?

I’m sticking with my routine for now. Check out Sandy Point for morning colors, Look in on Kent Narrows. then head for CBEC, which is open 24/7, so I can show up when it’s convenient for me.

I’ve been told that CBEC is a good warbler spot, but I haven’t seen the proof yet. Still, there’s enough action to keep me  interested, and migration is advancing every day. I stopped at Greenbury Point this morning for a change of pace, but I found nada there.

This Orbweaver set his trap in the blind, and I was able to get a fairly sharp closeup of the action.
