A Day for the Birds

I went for a long hike today, over to Sachuest Point, Sachuest Beach, and the salt marsh behind Third Beach. Not all the shots I took turned out well, but these three I can live with.

A curious Killdeer came to investigate in the Third Beach parking lot.

  1. ...that Piping Plover is adorable. I love his sweet, sweet face. Nice Chipping Sparrow too. I always love the eyes on Kildeer! Sounds like a good day! (Rainy and cold here...)

  2. There are many sparrows in my neck of the woods, but not kildeer or plover. Fun to see your photos.

  3. i hear the killdeer have returned to cleveland....the real sign of spring now that robins have become residents....

    love piping ploves.....

  4. Your photos speak volumns. Thank you so much for sharing. I am unable to travel and live on the west coast but feel like I visit you part of New England each and every day. Many many thanks

  5. so happy you fixed the margins and all the sweet birds fit in!! chirp, chirp!!
