Even though you don’t see any spots now, this is a spotted sandpiper. During breeding season (summer) this guy has brown spots all over his stomach. Isn’t that sexy?!?

I think these are least sandpipers.

A face only a mother could love. They look prehistoric.

I’m not sure if I would want to stand in water waist deep fishing all morning. These guys didn’t seem to mind. At least they stayed cool.

Just a few critters around Fort Desoto Park on a recent trip.

  1. Great shots of the birds. And I suddenly remember it’s been far too long since I went fishing.

  2. The Wood stork really does look prehistoric. That’s what I think when I see brown pelicans fly by in a group. The Oystercatchers are so cute.
