Baird’s Sandpiper

After the rain this morning, it cleared up nicely for a late afternoon stroll at Boundary Bay. My main focus was the tidal pools between 96 St. and 104 St. Initially there were two of groups of Baird’s Sandpiper present.

While the larger first group was not going to let me get too close,

… the second smaller group was quite cooperative.

They spent a lot of time foraging in the seaweed along the high water mark,

… and did not seem to mind my tagging along.

They eventually meandered out into the tidal pools providing this final shot. Another enjoyable outing on the bay.
