  1. Love these little birds. We have at least 6 this year. But they’ve moved further away, back from the boardwalk, as the water level changed, so it’s harder to get a good shot.

    1. They are another understated beauty with that color scheme. The water will be let back into this pond as soon as the burning is done and I expect these will move somewhere we can’t see them.
