Waders

 Wader Time Again
Not many waders around at this time of year. Winter is not a good time to count waders at Mullen's with low tides and cold water to walk through to get to the site. Still and all, 11 Species totaling 96 individual birds is not bad. With showers hanging around I was debating whether to take the camera or not; just as well I had a raincoat for it!

  Red-necked Stint (Calidris ruficollis)

 Pacific Golden Plover (Pluvialis fulva)


 Double-banded Plover (Charadrius bicinctus)
For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday.

Great photos - I'm glad you took your camera and its "raincoat". How about a photo of that next time??

The double-banded plovers look like they are wearing designer clothes!

Lovely to see the wild birds in action in rainy weather. Love all the textures in these photos. And the birds seem to blend in so well.

I'm amazed that you could see them, let alone count them! Nice shots.
