    Piping Plover
    Laughing Gull
    Herring Gul
    Royal Tern ???
  2. great captures. wish I coulda been there.
  3. Great shots, Mike, but I really like the 1st shot and the visible depth of field.
  4. 1st and last two are incredible!! Wow you had an awesome day! jealous, looks great on you!!
  5. Hi Mike, Looks like you had a great day! Really nice shots. I think I can help with some of the ID's:

    You got the first two right.
    #3 Laughing Gull
    #4 Herring Gull
    #5 Common Tern
    #6 Lesser Yellowlegs
    #7 Common Tern
  6. BTW Mike, I really like how you are doing your frames now (maybe they've been this way for awhile--but I just noticed!) Must be a lot of steps though!
  7. Mike, We really got lucky with that little pond, I can't believe there were that may different shore birds (I.D. by jczinn) from such a small spot. The different sounds they all made was pretty cool.
