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!
Male Hairy Woodpecker pictured (The males have the red patch at the back of their head) If you see a woodpecker that looks similar to this it is either a Hairy or a Downy ( about 2/3 the size)
There's nothing like a bath in the rain in January, right??? :)
