Too Much Good Stuff

Right after we returned from Santa Rosa we headed to the coast to check out the shorebird Spring migration. Though I was afraid that we might be too late, it turned out to be the perfect time to check it out.

As usual, we got there far earlier than we needed to do, but luckily we weren’t the only ones.  This Short-Billed Dowitcher showed up about the same time we did, early enough that the fog hadn’t totally cleared out.

Before long he was joined by  hundreds more birds like this Dunlin.

As it turned out, there seemed to be more shorebirds at Bottle Beach that day than I had ever seen before.

Needless to say, I ended up with far too many shots, a major reason it has taken me so long to post since my last post.  I’ll admit that I hate sitting at the computer deleting photos almost as much as I love being out in nature taking the shots.
