It was a beautiful sunny morning. A great day for bird watching. I decided to go to Sainte Martine. There have been reports of Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs sightings. Beautiful site.
I took a selfie.
There were American Robins and Ceder waxwings in the trees by the side of the road. A Yellow rumped Warbler (Myrtle) landed in a dead tree nearby.
Followed by a Blue Jay.
There were lots of birds in the water. A Ringed-bill Gull ventured close to shore and I got this shot.
There were Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs here and there. This is a Lesser Yellowleg by the falls.
Nearby, was a Greater Yellowleg walking about.
A Lesser Yellowleg was looking for breakfast near the shore.
Further out, a Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs were next to each other. You can see the differences between the two. They look alike. The Lesser is smaller and has a shorter bill. The Greater is bigger and has a longer bill.
Why is there a second photo of the two. The above photo was take with my Sigma 150-600C lens and cropped. The one below was taken with my scope and phone. I use a PhoneSkope adapter to connect scope and phone. To minimize vibrations, I used the bluetooth remote from a selfie stick to take the photo. Not too bad.
Lots of Mallard Ducks flying about, in the water and getting some sun.
This looks like An American Black Duck and a Mallard Duck on a rock as seen through the scope.
Lots of Canada Canada Geese flying overhead.
There were Asters near the shore. The bees were buzzing and flying from flower to flower.
Hundreds of Painted Lady Butterflies in the area.
and one Monarch Butterfly in a sea of orange.
That all for today’s walk.
