Hooded Merganser at Quiet Waters Park

Yesterday, I met Graeme at the 450 Bridge and we looked for eagles without much luck. We also stopped at Quiet Waters and Thomas Point with the same results.
Today I started with Quiet Waters, which was more productive, and ended at Thomas Point, which is still very slow.

Dawn at the 450 Bridge.

Bald Eagle

I saw this Bald Eagle flying across South River.

Great Blue Heron

There's always a Great Blue Heron in the cove-I wonder if it's the same one?

Song Sparrow

Song Sparrows often forage among the rocks at Thomas Point.

White Throated Sparrow

This White Throated Sparrow was also foraging at Thomas Point.


Mallards are the principal duck at the moment.


Buffleheads in small flocks remain at Thomas Point.
