Paddle boats Return to L. Kittamaqundi ~~ other spring birds


Migrating paddle boats returned from their winter homes to Lake Kittamaqundi this week.

Here are a few other birds which showed up around the lake:

Mallard ducklings -- Two or three broods appeared recently, but expect their numbers to be culled by predators.


Male common yellowthroat (a warbler species, not to be confused with yellow-throated warbler)



Eastern kingbird


Osprey


Spotted sandpiper on the Little Patuxent River next to the lake
