Get Your Feet Back In The Dirt

So I'm on the move. BB&B is seeing its glorious, explosive launch into the blogosphere tonight from Princess Anne, Maryland, on the Delmarva Peninsula on the east side of Chesapeake Bay. It's been raining all day but the birding was still pretty awesome. Helllloooooooo, Brown-headed Nuthatches! Also saw a couple Red-headed Woodpeckers, a vagrant (?) American White Pelican, and oodles of Swamp Sparows. All of today's pictures are from Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.

My first Dunlin of the fall. Seems they didn't mind the rain.

Great Egrets never get old......because they live forever? Sure.

This area is overrun with Bald Eagles. I had no idea they were so common here, but it adds a majestic touch to just about everything. These are two different pairs. The top pair was checking out some Canada Geese, and the bottom pair were loitering on an Osprey nesting platform. Note the camera mounted on the right side.

I saw a few, no pictures though, so you get the sign instead. Delmarva Fox Squirrels. Pretty sick.


  1. tucker. i just met tim bodeen, formerly of midway fame, currently of malheur cleanup fame. finally confessed to my boss that i passed up a midway invite. he looked at me like i was wearing bunny ears on the senate floor.
    where you headed next?

  2. Coolidge. It took me a second to figure out who you were. I do not know of this "Mary". would have loved it! I'm in the Outer Banks right now, moving south daily.
