This was my first day this summer taking pictures of shorebirds. I found a good variety, the most interesting of which was this lone Pectoral Sandpiper.
There are always numerous Short-billed Dowitchers in the area. This species along with Semipalmated and Least Sandpipers and Semipalmated Plovers are probably the most common. The Least is not pictured here.
I can't forget to mention Yellowlegs which are also very common. The bird pictured here is a Lesser Yellowlegs.
I was treated to a spectacular sunset the best of which occurred after I made my way back to my car. I regretted not sticking around longer to capture that. July 22, Mattthew's Lake.
