My wife and I periodically visit the Blackwater Wild Life refuge to catch a glimpse of the visiting waterfowl and the resident eagles that call the sanctuary home. The sanctuary is a mix of marsh, woodland, open water, and ever-changing landmasses that provide interest and opportunity to record with photographs and sketches the landscape, birds, and mammals that call the refuge home
The name blackwater comes from the water's deep red-brown color, the result of the tannin in the nearby peat boggy soil staining the water as it drains into the marshland.
