We Need Spring…..

This past week wasn’t a pleasant one weather-wise.  It was cold & windy, and we even woke up one morning to an overnight snow dusting.  I don’t know about you, but I am really ready for some warm weather!  A lot of the winds this week were from the west/southwest which blew directly into Marshy Creek.  With really no wind protection, I noticed we had less visiting waterfowl.  Of course we had mallards, and I also saw a few coots a couple of times.  Several days ago, a lone mallard was riding some of the waves, by his expression, you’d have to say he’s a happy duck!

Last night I was thinking I had nothing much else to share, but today proved otherwise.  Just as the sun was rising, I captured a young eagle on our osprey nest.  The first light shined really bright on him.

I watched him for about 20 minutes, he then took flight up and over to Lipincott’s channel marker.

Today was windy again but wonderful with the bright sunshine.  I was away but soon as I got home, I spotted an eagle flying around, with ducks trying desperately to get out of his way.

Finally, you will notice I’ve added a new ‘tab’ at the top of the page labeled “Osprey Facts” courtesy of Friends of Blackwater NWR.  Check here for some interesting information!
