There just aren't enough hours in the day. My posts have fallen behind, my pictures are piling up, but I have been birding and squeezing other responsibilities in between. Shorebird season for us, here in St. John's, started out slowly. On July 27, I saw these two Least Sandpipers at a small pond on Ruby Line Road. The pond pretty much evaporated during the long, dry spell we had. I got excited because I thought this was the beginning of the season. It turned out these two were way ahead of the rest.
Well, this is just the beginning of several reports on shorebirds. Some great things have been happening this week, and I will post pictures.
While the season seemed to chug along like a slug in the beginning, action has sped up.
