I had a chance on Friday to get out to the local refuge and chase a White-faced Ibis that showed up for all to see. It's not as good as the Eleania that showed up in Chicago but I'll take what I can get. I got a good look at the Ibis but it wasn't close enough to get any good photos so after a while I started to notice some shorebirds close to the observation deck I was on. The conditions were perfect and I took advantage to get some nice shots.
The majority of shorebirds are still to the south but little by little they will be arriving in my area. Today I saw my first Dunlins and expect the pace of arrivals to pick up. Now if we can just make sure the mudflats are around I should have a fun time trying to ID all the peeps that are on the way.
