The tides are running low and it's early in the morning - this makes for a perfect combination to visit Bunche Beach....come along...
As to be expected - the Black Skimmers were present in great numbers.
|The birds are hungry and foraging for food - such as this Little Blue Heron.|
|The Red Knot - look how beautiful they are in their breeding plumage! Soon they will leave and head north.|
|A Least Sandpiper - the smallest peep of them all.|
|A Dunlin in the background with its turning black belly.|
|Red Knots are so much easier to identify with their red belly.|
|One of my favorites - the Short-billed Dowitcher - this one too is sporting its bright plumage before heading north.|
A Snowy Egret - snow white with yellow slippers matching the yellow lore.
|The Little Blue Heron.|
|A Semipalmated Plover - one of many that were foraging.|
A Piping Plover - getting ready to do poop....
|As Ed Combs said: "He looks very patriotic with its red/white/blue colors" and I have to agree.|
|The tide was coming in and slowly the birds started to leave.|
|As I was heading out, I caught sight of a Willet with its fresh catch - Crab! Yum!|
And that, concludes my low tide visit, folks...until the next time. My E-Bird List for today.
