Outside the visitor center we had a great sighting (right above our heads) of a Cedar Waxwing flock.
They landed in a tree with berries, I was lucky enough to focus on one before a group starlings landed and scared them off.
Blackwater located on the Atlantic flyway is a very birdie place, it is designated as an IBA important bird area and it is also home to the endangered Delmarva fox squirrels. It is also a sanctuary for the Bald Eagles. I have heard the first egg has appeared and you can check out the Eagle webbcam here: http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/. The Eagle festival is in March and is a very popular event.
Sorry, I could not zoom closer but in front of the geese is a juvenile Bald Eagle
Blackwater is a very scenic place. It is along the Blackwater River, it consists of tidal wetlands, field and mixed evergreen and deciduous trees. There are walking trails, canoe and kayaking and the wildlife drive. It is one of my favorite places to visit.
Thanks for stopping by to see my Scenic Sunday and to see more go and visit the Holleys at : Scenic Sunday
