The next thing we saw at the bird viewing area were Sandpipers. This one was right by the entrance. After a lot of looking through the bird book, I think this might be a White Rumped Sandpiper (white something back there, anyway).

This bird was very cooperative, but I discovered two things. One is that most sandpipers look very similar and the second is that it's hard to identify a specific bird when his legs and bill are covered in mud!

OK... that's enough for tonight. I'll have more Port A pictures tomorrow -- we saw a lot of species at the bird viewing area! Then it's back to Rockport for more birds! This could take all week.

Hi Lee,

Yep -- we had a great weekend! Now I need to play catch-up on getting the pics online. There were a lot of good ones, so picking the best is a challenge!
