Below: I spent a long vigil with Tom Feild and Ed Carlson hoping to refind the male Dickcissel found by Rob and Mike Ostrowski in Charles Co. During our second visit, the bird suddenly appeared and spent several minutes skulking around and chipping quietly. We realized it was waiting for us to leave before visiting its nest, so we moved on. I was lucky enough to land this photo of this tailless bird with a lunch of katydid.

Below: Documentation shot of two Black Skimmers found at Swan Creek, Maryland by Elaine Hendricks and Ed Boyd (7/26/2011). Quite rare away from Worcester Co., this was my first record for the western shore of Maryland. (Digiscoped with Canon Powershot)

Below: Documentation of a rare adult Baird's Sandpiper at Swan Creek, Anne Arundel Co., Maryland (7/29/2011). This is one of few documented records of an adult Baird's in Maryland. The vast majority of Baird's observed in our region are juveniles. (Digiscoped)

Below: An Atlantic Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus) in coastal Worcester Co., Maryland (7/22/2011). We convinced Mikey Lutmerding to try to touch it, and the crab's pinching speed was remarkable. Unfortunately Mikey was just quick enough to escape and our laughs were controllable. So close.
