spotted sandpiper

Kathleen Lake
A very common sandpiper, but recognized by me, for it's dark spots on white underparts, and yellow ( pinkish) bill with black tip. Apparently it bobs it's tail.

lesser yellowlegs nest

May 16, 2016, walking through the swamp around mooseskull lake by accident I flushed a lesser yellow legs off her nest.

On the lake this week  there are more then 4 lesser yellowlegs,  maybe 4 bonaparte gulls,  maybe 4 barrow's golden eyes, a mallard pair, a dozen scaup, and on the shore I spotted, robins, grey jays and a pair of rusty blackbirds.
