Shorebirds are something I still need to learn a lot about. I can identify some, but most give me headache trying to figure out.
Several weeks ago, while at the sewage ponds north of town, I could see shorebirds off in the distance. As I got close to them, they took to the air and began flying back and forth across the pond.
I wasn’t sure what they were, so I waited for them to pass by me so I could get a shot of the flock. I was able to get a number of shots on several of the passes the birds made.
After I returned home and got the images on the computer, I was able to determine the birds were Long-billed Dowitchers.
