It’s that slow time of year again, when the ducks haven’t arrived and migration is winding down. There’s an irruption of Siskins and Grosbeaks in the area, but I haven’t seen anything yet.
I’ve been doing the same rounds-Sandy Point, Possum Point, Jonas Green, Quiet Waters, with a single trip to Truxtun Park . I’m planning to give Artemesia a try tomorrow. I’ve been avoiding it as it was getting too crowded, so we’ll see what happens.
No really cool birds this week, just a trickle of the regulars. I’d say the Royal Terns were my favorites.
Walk outside anywhere in MD and you may hear a Carolina Wren.
