"But now ask the animals and let them teach you; AND THE BIRDS OF THE HEAVEN, and let them tell you. Or let the fish of the sea declare to you. Who among all these does not know that The Hand of The Lord has done this; In whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."

Job 12:7-10

Pectoral Delights

                              American White Pelican

                                 Pectoral Sandpiper

Pectoral Sandpipers

Greater Yellow-legs

Pectoral Sandpipers were so much fun and quite amazement to me. Very tight flying in their small group, like a ball suspended from the ground-traveling with supersonic speed. They did manage to put up with my camera intrusions...Other highlights were 3-Bonaparte Gulls and approx 15 Spotted Sandpipers with Northern Shovelers in the possibly thousands.
