Long-billed Dowitcher

There’s been a long-billed Dowitcher at Spring Canyon for the last week. I see them during migrations every year, so it’s not an new bird for me but it is a pretty cool looking bird and it didn’t seem to mind me taking pictures of it as it grazed.

It was a little overcast and wet (has been all week) but it was not windy at all so the what light there was reflected off of the shallow pools nicely. The red clay walls of the canyon and the green of the cattails and grasses and trees around the wetlands colors the light and the water and makes the photos pop.
