Mill creek Marsh,
Today at Mill creek marsh the shorebirds really moved in I counted about 100 Semipalmated Sandpiper, 3 Semipalmated Plovers , 20 Least Sandpiper, 6 Greater Yellowlegs, seen by others Solitary Sandpiper.
Its about time I had some decent Dowitcher shots but I had to pay a price ,by getting down and dirty into the muck, these birds are slightly cropped with minimal Photoshop enhancement .
By the way the Dowitchers were really tame allowing me to be within the sweet spot range 25 to 35 feet, Greater Yellowlegs now that's another story they can be wary at times.
