Oxbow Lake, Anne Arundel, Maryland, US

Comments: Conditions: 49°F, partly cloudy, wind WNW 16 mph gusts to 27 mph. A little windy, but still a nice morning for a walk around Oxbow Lake. The water level is down from the flood a week ago and the rain on Monday and Tuesday. Nice mud for Wilson's Snipe and Killdeer who flew in on my trip back from Eagle's Head Cove. Many of the waterfowl (geese, ducks, and mergansers) were huddled in the western cove. Amazingly, about 250+ Canada Geese all took off at the same time and I watched as a large skein flew across the sky westward, probably to find a field to feed in. The number of Bufflehead increased, but I did not find any Shoverlers or Gadwall while I was there.
