Maplewood: October 11th 2009

Thanks to the long weekend I was able to get out birding for the second day in a row. The tide was just beginning to recede when I arrived at Maplewood flats and so I was able to get some excellent views at the four Greater Yellowlegs and one of the Long-billed Dowitchers present.

It was quite amazing to watch the Greater Yellowlegs in action. They were very efficient at capturing prey. I observed one of them pull some sort of worm out of the mud and then a couple seconds later another had a small fish in its bill and shortly after that a different individual captured a crab.

Well I definitely have something to be thankful for. I hope your thanksgiving was as good as mine!
