2017—Fine Feather

What’s interesting about the shore birds in Churchill, Canada is that they’re sporting their breeding plumage.  Over the years,  I’ve seen lots of shorebirds, mostly on my annual January visits to Port Aransas on the Gulf of Mexico.  Because I see these birds in winter, on their southern most stop on their winter migration, their feathers are gray and their plumage is rathe drab.  Not so the shore birds on Hudson Bay.  They are in fine feather so to speak, like this Long-billed Dowitcher, posing one evening on a rock in the Granary Pond at the Port in Churchill.
