Documentation photos of an astounding find by Stan Arnold and Ed Carlson - a LONG-BILLED CURLEW at Swan Creek in northern Anne Arundel Co., Maryland (5/23/2011). Pending acceptance, this would be only the fifth accepted record of this species in Maryland. Congratulations, Stan and Ed!  <a href='http://bna.birds.cornell.edu/bna/species/628/galleries/figures/figure-1/image_popup_view' class='text' target='_blank'>Range Map</a> Photo by Bill Hubick.

Below: Northern Mockingbird is a scarce and local species in Garrett Co., Maryland (5/21/2011), typically in the southeastern corner of the county. We were surprised to find this one in the northwestern corner. Look for what could almost be called its host plant - Multiflora rose.

Below: A Great Blue Heron prepares a catfish lunch. Sue Ricciardi pointed out that it typically takes catfish to the small island before swallowing them, while other species are simply tossed back. We theorized that killing the catfish on dry land reduces the risk of harm via the catfish's sharp fins.
