Tundra Swan at Terrapin Nature Park.

It’s been a slow few days. Slow birding and bad weather have slowed me a little, but I was back on the road today.

It was my first trip to Terrapin in a while, and it was decent. It was the first time I’ve seen a Tundra Swan there, and the Green Winged Teal actually stayed close enough for a decent image.

CBEC was good enough also, and I’ve got a few pics from Blackwater as well.
