Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center; Tundra Swans


This was a trip across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge earlier this week for a first visit to the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center. Photos here were taken along the trail around Knapp Lake. Above: A large groundhog was one of the first animals seen on the trail. Following photos show tundra swans on the lake. They were sharing it with pintails, ring-necked ducks and mallards. There was much more to see -- a good look at the so-called Everglades of the Chesapeake, if you don't feel like driving to places farther away on the Eastern Shore.
