Yesterday morning at Broughton Beach was great- the weather was just unwelcoming enough that I was the only person there for the first hour and a half.
I found two Western Meadowlarks right at the beginning of the trail...
Another ten feet or so down the path were three Horned Larks. One was fully decked in leg bands:
Orange and purple on the right leg, red and white on the left. This bird has more accessories than me!
On our way back from the Sea Scout Base I saw some shorebirds had joined the gull flock on the beach. I walked the dogs out there to see what was going on: a mess of Ring-billeds, Californias, Mews (the first I've seen this fall), a handful of Bonaparte's (!) and a few Dunlin (I think).
Anyway, it was a fun and beautiful walk...
