I think these are Dowitchers, the long billed ones. The algae in the pond had turned red.
These photos are for Stewart at Wild Bird Wednesday.
Flying Dowitchers at Sidney Spit. I am not very good at my shorebirds. Someone will tell me what it is.
Below are Ducks: this one is a Cinnamon Teal. These photos are for the ABC Team and ABC Wednesday. I am hoping the ABC Team will continue on next year.
This is a Bufflehead Duck.
These are Harlequin Ducks and I fell on the rocks at Cattle Point as I took this photo. Both cameras were in front of me but I only scratched them a bit. My leg got all bruised and cut up and hurt like heck for a long time.
Double-crested Cormorants: the one below is a young one as he has white on him.
Here you can see the double-crest of the cormorant which is only seen in breeding season. The crests are white in Alaska and black in other regions. Photo at Albert Head.
Cormorant at Swan Lake above.
