I got out late yesterday, and spent a little time at Sandy Point. It was cool to find a Snow Goose mixed in with a flock of Canada Geese, a most unusual find for this area. There were lots of distant ducks and a few passerines also.
I went to Blackwater this morning, and found all the usual suspects, as well as a few nice ducks at Oakley Street.

There were fewer Bald Eagles than usual.
