I did run into a group doing their own bird-a-thon, I was jealous because they had been birding all day and still were not yet done. Oh to be retired... They were super nice and I hope they got to see some cool birds.
Anyway- after a walk around the main loop, this is all I came up with despite the crazy wind...
|Sitting on the nest and staying low from the high winds.|
|Ruffled feathers in gusty winds for this mourning dove.|
|Found some spotted sandpipers on my way out- this guy was super cooperative as I sat behind the fence peering at him.|
|Spotted sandpipers are recognizable not only because they are spotted but also because they teeter as they walk. That teeter also adds onto their super cuteness.|
|Oh, in case you were not aware- catbirds are back, and everywhere... but I really like them, a lot.|
|A super cute song sparrow perches on the ledge over looking the marsh-- also super cooperative!|
|Obligatory bird in a flowery shrub picture...|
