The group of Harlequin Ducks sunning on the rock eventually went out on the water, but this little fellow stayed back and had a long bath and grooming session... What fun!
This handsome shorebird was new to me and kindly ID'd by a friendly birder (thank you, sir) as a Black Turnstone! They are very dark when sneaking through the tide rocks searching for small mollusks which they were prying off the stone.
These local characters are always a treat for me to watch! Oystercatchers enjoy the afternoon sunshine!
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
