These pictures are from my pontoon boat ride this morning. I went with my bird club to look for Sora's, Rails and other birds. The scenery here is wonderful, at least I think so. So I am including the first shot as my scenic Sunday photo.

The birding was great and here is a report of my birding at Jug bay Patuxent river. We saw Bald Eagles, Osprey, GB Herons, Great Egrets, Green Heron, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Lots of migrating Canda Geese, Belted Kingfisher, Redbellied Woodpecker, Pileated Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Greater Yellowlegs, Ring billed gull, lots of Red-winged Blackbirds. The tide was too high to the see Sora's but we heard a few and we also heard the Virginai Rails. It was neat hearing the Sora's and Rails call back and tehy seemed to answer calls more to clapping then the actual bird sounds.
This GB Heron seemed to be having trouble swallowing whatever it was trying to eat. Close to this time was when I saw my first Merlin. So I did get one lifer today. I am not counting hearing the Sora and Rail as lifers.
One of the highlight of the trip for me was seeing three Hawks, we believe they were all Harrier's flying low over the river and marsh.
There were plenty of Wood Ducks, Blue-winged Teals and Green -winged Teals.
On the way back to the boat dock we went past a yard that had goats and it seemed funny to me to see a couple of Great Egrets not far away.
I want to thank the Scenic Sunday host for putting this Meme together for me and you to enjoy. And I thank everyone who stops by my blog.
