A Tundra Swan Spies on Bird-watchers


At Pickering Creek Audubon Center, Talbot County on Maryland's Eastern Shore. I was on a bird-watching trip to the Eastern Shore with a friend on Saturday. Currently, I am posting more photos from the trip in "My Flickr Photostream" linked in the blog list in the margin, but here are a few more scenes from Pickering Creek:

Wildlife around Lake Kittamaqundi this Week

Trio: cardinals and white-throated sparrow near my feeders

Cooper's hawk checks the menu at my feeders.

A kingfisher finds open water in the stream at the south end of the frozen lake.

Water's Edge Condominium provided a good contrasting background for this view of a bluebird.

Friday: I hadn't seen a beaver at the lake for a long time.
