Purple Sandpipers at the Point

I was happy to see these two shorebirds come flying in off the Thomas Point Lighthouse rocks this afternoon. This pair of PURPLE SANDPIPERS made two loops, but decided to head South down the bay instead of visiting the rocks that line the Thomas Point Park.The LONG-TAILED DUCKS were out on the bay in decent numbers. Check out the tails on these two birds. There was also a hot little REDHEAD, but she was too far away to get any photos. ; )So instead, I'll leave you with a flock of BUFFLEHEADS in flight.Best,
Dan
