Waders, Part 2 of 2


Here are more pictures that I took of the largest and rapidly shrinking, rainfall retention basin pond here in the development.  I took these pictures of a lone Snowy Egret and three Lesser Yellowlegs on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014.  There is a lot of food now easily available to these birds.

I don’t know how much longer the water will support waders, but I sure was glad to be there and spot these beautiful birds!  I took these pictures just at twilight and the light was golden.  The birds were at the far side of the pond that evening, which is a big difference from the scene a few days ago (part 1).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph.  Enjoy!
