Pleasant census yesterday, but I'm still waiting for the big push.
Highlights: 5 Little Blue Herons and 3 Virginia Rails in the wetlands; 20 Caspian Terns in the north cell. Swamp Sparrows were everywhere, but Song Sparrows were notably absent in several areas where they spent the winter.
*** NOTE: Swan Creek/Cox Creek is an active industrial site and mitigation project in northern Anne Arundel Co. Access is at the end of Kembo Road off Fort Smallwood Road near 695. The site is open ONLY Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please be in your car and leaving at 3:30 p.m.. Remember to always sign in at the office, to be on your best behavior (people have worked hard to coordinate this access), and to stick to permitted areas. This Swan Creek map linked here details where you are and aren't allowed to walk. http://www.billhubick.com/docs/swan_creek_map.jpg. ***
