Shorebirds on the Lake



These are Lesser Yellowlegs and probably Killdeer. There also were a bunch of very tiny shorebirds I don’t know the name of, but are possibly a kind of plover, strolling along the shoreline area.   I took these pictures two weeks ago on the  local neighborhood lake (this location on the lake  is nearly dry now by the way).  The shorebirds were hunting for tiny fish, tadpoles, aquatic insects and snails.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, I do see the Killdeer and Yellowlegs. Always a treat to see these pretties. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

    • Hi Eileen, Those birds are nice to see here. I have really worried about the lake as daily it shrinks. Still have ducks, egrets, herons, and geese. Occasionally I also see a few Sandhill Cranes. The pelicans are on a nearby larger lake.

  2. Love seeing the tiny shorebirds… Sometimes we get too involved with the bigger birds and ignore the beautiful small ones… Thanks.

    • Hi Betsy, I agree! Hope you have pleasant weather and will start enjoying your yards and the golf course a bit. Hope you spot deer. Have a great day tomorrow!
