Shore Birds and a Life Bird

I went out this morning at 6 am to look for some new birds at the lake behind our house. I was able to find four species of shorebirds: two Short-billed Dowitchers, five Solitary Sandpipers, and one Willet. The most exciting birds were about 30 Semipalmated Sandpipers, because that is sandpiper a life bird for me.

I didn’t get as many photos as I would have liked, but the light was pretty bad so early in the morning that there was no point in taking too many pictures.
