Shorebirds and Pintails - photos

Around 2 p.m. there were three Northern Pintails in cell 2 at the Bracebridge Ponds. Also a Greater and a Lesser Yellowlegs and a Semipalmated Sandpiper were on "the beach" at the south end of cell 2. Earlier this morning while it was still raining, there were about thirty Lesser Yellowlegs, four Stilt Sandpipers, two Solitary Sandpipers, a Dunlin, a Least Sandpiper, and two Semipalmated Sandpipers on the beach. Unfortunately when a Mallard flew out from the shore, the whole bunch of shorebirds flew up too and after some circling, they decided to head south, as the rain had eased off. The birds are definitely on the move today...worth a check later. There were several Swallows hawking insects at the west side of cell 4, mostly Barn, but also Tree, Bank, and at least one Cliff Swallow.

The best my little camera could do...just for the record shots:

Stilt Sandpipers
