As the sun set lower in the sky the light became increasingly golden. I scampered down to edge of a very shallow pond and parked myself on a dry mud flat. Enduring the annoying ants that kept on crawling up my shorts, I sat there and watched all the little birds feeding in the mud. (Feel free to correct me if I misidentified a particular bird.)

1) Long Billed Dowitcher in the reeds.




2) A White Faced Ibis.

I caught it at just the right angle to get the irradescent green shimmer off the wing feathers. :G



3) Killdeer.

Actually as I was making my way down the hillside towards the edge of the pond, I came across a different Killdeer doing it's "distressed-broken-wing-display." It's nest must have been close by. I felt bad and backtracked around it.




4) Sanderling




5) A flock of Sanderlings. Must be evening rush hour.



Thanks for looking.

- Hung
