Shorebird wise, there were not a lot of different species and a number of shorebirds, which is flying overhead. There were a number of shorebirds feeding up and down the shoreline, so I just sat myself down with my big lens in front of me and waited till the shorebirds came to me. This way, instead of me chasing them, and the shorebirds flying off. I had a better chance at photographing. There were a number of semipalmated plovers, in fact, one of them walked up to within 3 feet of me and stared right at me.

The main bird feeding on the shore were sandelings, most of them were juvenile and they could be distinguished from the few adults by their nice clean feathers.
