Tundra Swans at Thomas Point.

We’re going through another  birding drought, it seems. I’ve been a little reluctant to travel much as there’s not been much to see. Some of it’s luck, some is weather, and it’s all part of the game.

Swans and Buffleheads have arrived, and most of our migrant visitors have gone South. I’ve been recording most of my trips on Ebird, and the lack of variety is noticeable. More ducks will be here soon, and all will be well.
