White Throated Sparrow at Quiet Waters.

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.
