The tide was just about perfect this afternoon when I checked for the KILLDEER. After searching the rocky intertidal area for a short time, it flew a short distance and vocalized. If not for that, I might have easily missed it. Despite the bright white body and distinctive black necklaces, it blends in perfectly.
I also looked for the TRUMPETER SWANS, wondering how the territorial dispute was working out, but they were not to be found. I hope everything is OK and they will be back!
