This afternoon it was back to the Tsawwassen Ferry causeway for the Grey-crowned Rosy-finch that had eluded me on previous attempts and a Ruddy Turnstone. On arriving and speaking to some birders already there, the finch had not been seen.
The Ruddy Turnstone on the other hand,
was busy foraging for food amongst the seaweed,
… and did not seem concerned with the birders and photographers at all.
At one point it went through the motions as if it was going to cough something up.
The Ruddy Turnstone eventually made its way down to the water.
… where it was bath time.
Not often you find yourself having to back up while photographing shore birds. This particular bird was more than cooperative and made for a great afternoon.
