Photo Of The Day Nov 4

Searching

Today's photo is of a Long Bill Dowitcher flying, as it searches for bugs in the mud to eat. Most years the Dowitchers and other Sandpipers would have moved south sometime in early October, but so far the fall has been rather warm along the coast of British Columbia. Like the larger flocks of Lesser Snow Geese, the Dowitchers remain further north than usual.
