Needing a photo-fix Willard and I visited Blackwater NWR this morning. Located on Maryland's eastern shore near Cambridge, Blackwater is a wintering area for many species of waterfowl as well as a good number of Bald Eagles.
Great Blue Herons are plentiful as well. At one point five herons were in sight at stalking across the tidal flats in search of prey.
Throughout the morning we observed Canada geese, snow geese, tundra swans, northern shovelers, mallards, pintails, hooded mergansers, and northern harriers. I will be post images more images from Blackwater NWR in the coming days.
