The passerines seem to have finished migrating and I’m waiting for the waterfowl. I’ve seen Buffleheads recently, and I heard one report of Swans, so it won’t be much longer.
I’m still going to the same places, with a couple of looks at Terrapin and CBEC, both of which had flooding problems. I’ve tried Sandy Point a couple of times with no luck. It will get better.
Thomas Point is open now, but there’s not much to see yet. Plenty of Sparrows and Bluebirds, but no ducks or Swans yet. No Eagles, either.
So, these are the best from the last couple of weeks.
