Shorebirds at the Rainfall Basin

DSC_1240

Lesser Yellowlegs, and Killdeer were spotted at the then rapidly drying rainfall retention pond here in the development where I live on February 27, 2015.  This pond is now dry.  The pond fills with heavy rain and sometimes is around two feet deep.

I have spotted Yellowlegs there several times in past months.  The Lesser Yellowlegs and the Killdeer were likely eating insects as there are no fish in this temporary pond, and it is unlikely that there were any tadpoles or turtles there, either.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
