I got to Possum Point a couple of days ago and found Scoters, which I haven’t seen there previously. There was an overflight of 75 Double Crested Cormorants, which I’ve seen before. No Ruddys, which seems unusual, but I found a large flock at Thomas Point. I’ve also glanced at Jonas Green Park, but haven’t seen anything worth stopping for.
I got some nice closeups of a Long Tailed Duck and a White Throated Sparrow. A Cardinal has been attacking my car mirror at Thomas Point, and I recorded the action.
Many Canada Geese winter in the area.
Bufflehead courtship can be a frantic affair.
Buffleheads seem to be thriving.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Cowbirds at Quiet Waters recently.
A handsome Redhead.
There’s a bout a hundred Tundra Swans near Thomas Point.
I’ve seen only a few Surf Scoters this season.
One warm day I left the window rolled down, and my Cardinal friend perched inside.
It’s not unusual for a single bird to hang out in the same place for a while. This Long Tailed Duck has been at Thomas Point over a week.
There’s a few Black Scoters at the point.
I saw a flock of 60 Dark Eyed Juncos at Quiet Waters.
