2017—Dunlin on Bolivar

On my last full day in Texas this past April, Connie and I visited the Bolivar Peninsula to do some Beach Panning.  It was cold, overcast, and rain threatened but we went in search of shorebirds.  There weren’t great numbers but there were enough that kept us busy for a while.  The birds were coming into their breeding plumage and this Dunlin was sporting his finest feathers.
