Shorebirds

It’s that time of year again. water levels on the river are starting to fall revealing wide expanses of mud which attract the small shorebirds thgat are already starting to migrate south. last night we visited the shores of Anse a l’Orme on the northwestern shore of Montreal island and saw a good selection of little guys skittering about.

The birds must have been very keen on feeding as they allowed us to get much closer to them than is normally the case.
