Hello all!

I happened to pull up to the same spot on my motorcycle as the group was glassing the Buff Breasted 'piper (and thanks to all for their help and offers of use of their scopes. It was appreciated!. A short time later I was able to capture some images of it and then a bit later the Sabine's Gull as it came into the pond while I was shooting some shots the RN Phalarope and a very cooperative Dowitcher.

The image quality of the Buff and the Sabine's aren't my best work but good enough to document a couple lifers for me. Any interest in the images please look to my site @ bradmanchas.zenfolio.com you'll find the images in the shorebird folder (I know the gull doesn't belong there but I rarely capture shots of gulls)
