Loons, Moorhen, Hundreds of Birds in Flight August 21, 2010

Day 2 and Jen and I took off to Midland and Tiny Marsh. The amazing thing was seeing hundreds of birds flying together. They circled and came back - we kept hoping they would land.
Thrill of the day was the loon flying right beside the viewing platform. A young loon was also seen out on the water.


Jen and I stood at the top of the boardwalk and waited for the Moorhen to come out.



Hundreds of shorebirds, Lessor Yellowlegs

Hundreds of Red Wing Black Birds

Sandhill Cranes - a pair that were really noisy
