Looking Up

It’s September, and things are looking up in the avisphere, if that’s a word. Meaning, more birds are showing up. All you have to do is walk close enough to the side to see the water/stone interface. That’s where the action was when I walked on the east side of the park not long before sunset. A small flock of Black Turnstones stood there, mostly resting, and a Spotted Sandpiper displayed in the last rays and then flittered off.

Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius)

The sandpiper isn’t showing spots yet this early in the season. But it will.
