Shorebirds, more of 'em.

(Above: Sanderlings; Below: Sanderling and a Ruddy Turnstone)
This may be the last blog for a little while, not sure when I'll have ample internetwebs again. So soak it all up! More shorebird buddies from Anahuac NWR. (Below: Black-bellied Plover stretching it out; Western Sandpiper; American Avocet)

I like how you are able to capture those leg stretches.

Nice! The avocet is very statuesque.

Aw, I miss my avocet friends. They won't come back to Utah for months. But I just discovered that the White-face Ibis stays here for winter! I saw one poking around in the ice.
