Late Sunday afternoon (8-11-19) it clouded up to the point that I might get photos of shorebirds at the marsh without the distortion caused by heart waves and glare off the mud. High tide helped as well.

I believe this is a flock of western sandpipers. A birder friend who was at the marsh said that semi-palmated sandpipers also travel in flocks of westerns. The two birds look alike to me, but she said that semi-palmateds have slightly smaller bills than westerns. Very hard to tell at the distances I was shooting.





I never did see the mystery shorebird from the day before. My friend had viewed my Sasquatch shot and believed it was a yellowlegs. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
