Common Loon at Thomas Point.

It’s been a slow couple of days. I got out to Sandy Point yesterday, after being rained out in the morning, and to Lake Artemesia the day before, but there hasn’t been much to see. A Blackwater trip was ruined by a  deer hunt that I failed to see on the Blackwater web page.

I did OK today. Not a lot of birds, but a few good pics, especially of the Loon, one of my favorite birds.

  1. Oh my gosh! Fabulous shots!! I have got to get over to Thomas Point! I have been watching three loons from Hillsmere Beach, but always at a distance. What a joy to see them so close!
