Some Teal Ridge Shorebirds


May has been relatively kind to Teal Ridge Wetland in Stillwater, bringing cool temperatures and welcome rains.  While we’re still well below expected water levels, it has been a relief to see water return, followed by water birds.  Great and Snowy egrets, White-faced Ibis, and Yellow-crowned Night-Heron have been welcomed, as well as a nice mix of shorebirds.  Here are some I’ve been able to photograph lately.  Enjoy!
