Killdeer at the water's edge.
This was a better angle of the bird...not so crazy about the grass poking up in the foreground. I'm afraid my Photoshop skills don't extend to removing unwanted elements yet...
I really like American Avocets - such great plumage and they really work hard for their food. Constantly swinging that curved bill back and forth through the water. I have to appreciate all that effort.
This one still has mud dripping off his bill.
I liked the reflection of the bird in this shot.
I nearly always see this Great Blue Heron in the same spot. If he's not there when I first walk by, he'll inevitably show up sometime before I leave. A couple of times he's buzzed right over my head and barely missed me with his wings. It's amazing that a bird so large can get into the air.
