Migrating Gannets

Every year in the Spring and Fall you can see many Gannets migrating past our coast. In the Fall many of the birds are juveniles and I have rarely seen any come to shore like the juvenile pictured here. If the fishing is good you will often see them diving - hitting the water like an arrow and often bringing up lots of spray.

Assorted Shorebirds


Sanderling with worm. They always run when they find these to avoid having it stolen by another bird.


Short-billed Dowitcher running past me.


Black-bellied Plover in the seaweed.

Willet stretching. Clipped the wing tips.
