When we left for Occoquan NWR today, it was overcast, and looked as though it would stay that way...............BUT, by the time we arrived, the sun was out and bright. So we looked up into the bright sun, and shot up into the bright sun, and had to be thankful that the bright sun hasn't entirely disappeared, even though it makes for rough shooting conditions.
We also saw tree swallow, red-winged blackbird, mallard, an immature male Baltimore oriole (Hurray!), cardinal, osprey, yellow warbler, mockingbird, song sparrow, prothonotory warbler, bluebird, and one tiny goldfinch...that's all I can remember. The sun went back behind the clouds 10 minutes after we left!
