Another stop on the Courtney Campbell causeway during my drive home from work two weeks ago. I'm really going to miss these now that the time has changed and it's a dark trip home. The above was a flock of skimmers that took off when a jogger went running by. At first I was mad at the jogger for disturbing the birds but it did make for a nicer picture.

Cute little plover watching me.
A small group of marbled godwits trying to sleep. I think I was keeping them up even though I wasn't too close.
Finally, the sun went down and the moon came out. I took this on the causeway with my 300mm lens handheld.
Dowitchers walking along the shore after sunset.
Sanderling running for cover after dark. I used my flash on this one.
You can usually find at least one night heron on the causeway. This was an immature.
