Sunday Photo – Shorebirds Find a Fuddle

In our county we have a general lacking of shorebird habitat. However, when there is a good amount of rain timed right, farm puddles form. These “fuddles” become magnets to shorebirds and thanks to notification by a birder friend, we were able to see two lifer shorebirds for both Birdfreak and Veery {Hudsonian Godwit and Dunlin}.

The godwit is in the front by himself, the Dunlins are back left and the dowitchers are the two on the right.

Note: We are out in the field on our 72-hour bird count and will be posting our findings in the upcoming days. Stay tuned!!
