American Avocet at Bombay Hook.

Once again I drove too far and didn’t see much. It didn’t help that Bear Swamp Pool was closed for construction shortly after I arrived.

The bird with the biggest numbers was the Least Sandpiper, and even they weren’t as numerous as in the past.

I saw more eagles than usual, and a few ducks, but migration has slowed for the moment. Several Foxes were around but the low light prevented good images.
