The Return of a Sandpiper

It felt like we should be seeing arriving Northbound migrants. Sure enough, this evening a single Solitary Sandpiper was on the muddy areas of Lake Lancaster.

Over at Lake Davis, there are still a few American White Pelicans hanging around.

They soon soon began swimming around the lake's edge as the Sun headed behind the horizon.

I tried to get a shot of the first Mallard ducklings of the season but they scooted around the reeds too quickly. But then a female Common Yellowthroat popped out just before dark.

Should be seeing more migrants any day now.
