Back in a sec.
Easter Dinner. Yumm-y! OK, back to blogging. We saw LOTS of Northern Mockingbirds out at Greenbury Point in Annapolis. Greenbury Point has the only known population of Northern Bobwhite left in Anne Arundel County....
Lots of other birds were out and about around Greenbury Point, including this rather dapper-looking Bufflehead.
We journeyed on to Fort Smallwood Park, where Sue Ricciardi, the inestimable compiler of the Hawk Watch graciously allowed us to join her for an hour. We learned an incredible amount just listening to her and watching her. Along with the raptors, most of which were migrating northward over us at heights too high for photography, other birds floated on by. Like this Mute Swan. (Look closely and you can see it's just been taking a drink). And some Bonaparte's Gulls.
