Birds (and cicadas) of Maryland:

2021-06-09 - 2021-06-22 in Maryland
I was here two years earlier but without an ear or eye for birds. The difference was astounding. This was also the middle of the outburst of 17-year cicadas. Literally billions emerged from the earth in the Eastern Seaboard, filling the air and making a deafening racket. Highlights were birding outings at the excellent Cromwell Valley Park with brother Mark, and later in Oregon Ridge park with Mark, his daughter Bekah and her husband Nick. Even hanging out at Mom's showed an amazing number of different birds, so close to the Torrey C. Brown rail trail and the various waters of Big Gunpowder Falls, etc. I saw over 30 species of birds, and heard a few more. Oh, I saw people too ;-)
