When we irrigate the meadows by our house, these cute little creatures show up. They are also a little south of us on what we call the goose reserve. The reserve is just a small lake that stays open all winter. It has a warm spring that runs into the lake. These Long-Billed Dowitchers are a shore bird! A shore bird in the scablands? Yep. We get a lot of shore birds that show up here. They come and gobble up aquatic invertebrates in the mud. They have no idea what people are. You can walk right up to them and they keep pecking in the mud. There were probably about 20 of them.
Looking East. I just love when the sun light hits the hills. So pretty. Our house is down there in the canyon.
Thanks for stopping by.
