Some birds of McKinney Falls

A Little Blue heron, intent on heron business. This photo, and the ones that follow, were taken at the confluence of Onion and Williamson creeks, a few yards above the lower of the two waterfalls in McKinney Falls State park.

The little blue stayed quite a distance from me. But after it left, a green heron landed close by. Here it is, neck extended.

This, amazingly, is the same bird.

Some semi-palmated sandpipers, having a bite to eat during migration.

I clicked my camera just as two blue-winged teal flew away. I thought I had missed them, and I was surprised to find I had this photo.
