Long-billed Dowitchers.


Many, many more.

Next to the ubiquitous Mallard, the most numerous bird at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary today was Long-billed Dowitcher. Fall migration is in full swing. For a very dramatic representation, see the ultra cool radar images on the Cliff Mass Weather Blog.

I love that third shot.

Huh, I think you guys get much more of the migrators stopping by than we see. Or maybe I am just not looking in the right places.

Isn't that Doppler picture INSANE? I loved all the arguing in the comments. He seems pretty sure he's correct!
