Where to go? It’s a daily decision, and there’s usually no obvious answer. I know I’ll be out 3-4 hours, and I prefer short travel times, but I’ll sometimes go further.
In any case, I chose Possum Point this morning, and it was the right choice.
I was greeted by the resident Hermit Thrush, then was treated to a fishing showcase by two Eagles. A few more ducks rounded off a very nice morning.
These may be the same Redheads I saw a few days ago.
Ruddy Ducks have been missing f or a while, so It was nice to find a few.
I saw my very first Common Goldeneye at Possum Point about three years ago.
The Turkey Vulture is another bird I usually ignore, but this one flew right over my head.
Double Crested Cormorants are common here, but they fly quickly, so you have to be ready when they take off.
I saw two Bald Eagles when I arrived, and it was a thrill to see them fishing so close to my position.
