RISD Beach Aug 24, 2011

Here are some photos I took yesterday at RISD Beach. Despite the wind and the high water levels the birding was good, and we left pleased with our finds.

A Short-billed Dowitcher hunkering down from the wind.

The same dowitcher, NOT hunkering down from the wind and regretting it.

A Least Sandpiper shyly hangs out (from a distance) with its larger cousins the Semipalmated Sandpipers.

Can you spot the Pectoral Sandpiper?

A Pectoral Sandpiper and Semipalmated Sandpiper check out the mud.

A Ruddy Turnstone and some Semipalmated Plovers take flight while a Lesser Yellowlegs and some Semipalmated Plovers and Sandpipers watch. Can you find the yellowlegs?

A Lesser Yellowlegs studies the scene carefully.

A plover wings by.

How many bird species can you see in this picture? I can see five (Greater Yellowlegs, Lesser Yellowlegs, Ruddy Turnstone, Semipalmated Sandpiper and Semipalmated Plover.)

The birding and photographing was great!
