Spent more time today searching through the peeps and lo and  behold nine 
juvenile Least Sandpipers finally showed up. Also, over  night arrivals 
included a Long-billed Dowitcher and a juvenile Wilson's  Phalarope. Numbers 
down a little but any time spent is rewarded. I've added  a few photos to 
the 2011 gallery, especially good photo showing the difference  in the bill 
structure of male and female Avocets. As usual the distance and heat  did not 
help on the peep photos. If interested try.
I also added a series of photographs showing a brawl between a  pair of 
newly arriving Avocets and a pair of territorial Black-necked  Stilts.
Good  Birding!!!

What is this  feathered thing that lifts my heart to the  heavens.
