Yesterday we stopped by Potlatch State Park at the southern end of Hood Canal, on our way home from Port Townsend. While Bob practiced casting I enjoyed watching the shorebirds.
I think they were Plovers though I’m not certain of the particular variety even after consulting a field guide. Regardless, they were so charming. They stood perfectly still on the shore, their colors blending in with the sand and fragments of oyster shells.
Then they started running along the beach in fits and starts, as fast as their little legs could carry them. Use the arrow slide to take a look at them in color.
I kept my distance but they still eyed me warily. When I dared approach further they flew off in a hurry giving me an earful of their delightful chatter.
Aren’t they beautiful?
