Our canoe was still on the car from Saturday, and had yet to get wet. So we decided to go to Shirley’s Bay after supper, and check out the shorebirds silhouetted by the sunset. While paddling over, an Osprey dove into the river to fish, very close to our canoe.
Most of the birds were Least Sandpipers, although there were a few Yellowlegs and other species which we could not identify since they were strongly backlit.
