Deep Bottom Park

On a cool and overcast day, the water levels in the James and Four Mile Creek were extremely high. While it wasn’t the best day for wildlife viewing, it was good enough. Just as we were turning around to head back to our car, a Prothonotory Warbler popped out of the bushes. It hung out for a minute or two at a distance of probably 8 feet! We got some really nice shots of him at that range.

We also saw a Blue Heron use his outstretched wings to block the glare while he was hunting for some fish. I hadn’t seen that in person before.

Alas, we saw no Eagle this time.
