After a LONG flight, what could be better than a nap with friends?

Looks to me like he was half asleep before landing - the eye lid is halfway down the eyeball.

Very observant and a great catch Bill!

Thanks, Nick. I was actually having trouble at this spot as different things were going on all around me. Killdeer mating, Stilts flying, birds feeding. Oh, yeah, I just HATED it :wink: :wink:

I love th look he is giving that duck. to funny
Nice pics Bill
Thanks, Gale. Here is one more, the next in the series, cracks me up how "tall" the Stilt got. At this point I thought the Cinnamon Teals were going to leave, but nope, they just layed back down and went to sleep instead.

Super catches Bill. This one is still on my list of to get.

Thanks, Louie. I probably saw 2 dozen of these amongst the various ponds around the Othello area. And I thought they were "ocean" birds, didn't expect to see them in the middle of the state.

That's a classic series. The last two together are comical.
Thanks. The whole series is a dozen or so images, with the stilt walking back and forth on the rock. I was suprised that the Teals were so "accepting".

Good series, Bill. It's always fun to watch the different species interact.
Thanks, Sandi. This is the kind of interaction my wife Nancy likes, nice a friendly. She has problems with the way that Raptor interact with the "little birdies and critters" at times :wink:
