Black-necked Stilt at Bombay Hook NWR.

I wanted to get to Bombay Hook once more before the weather got too warm, and today looked to be a good chance.

There were plenty of birds to choose from, including many eagles and my first Black-necked Stilt.  There were hundreds of Sandpipers as well.

Many photographers were there as well, and they seemed to be very interested in the eagles.
