(a chatty Willet and some Dowitchers buds above)
We've been going to the marsh just before sunset the past few days. The rain has finally died down so there's been some nice light lately. And the timing had been pretty ideal, with high tie coming an hour before sunset or so.

So here's some marsh bird friends! There's been about 10-12 Ruddy Turnstones (bottom photo) hanging arund lately, which doesn't happen too often around here. Usually you'll just see one guy passing through, not a group of them, so that's kinda cool. This Great Blue was posing so nicely in some beautiful light, but he was a bit too far away for the picture I wanted. Either way, he fits nicely in that composition. (as common as GBHEs are, this is the only photo I've gotten of one...that's weird) Watery Wednesday
