Bird Friends at Parker River Refuge

We recently took a ride to Parker River Wildlife Refuge, expecting to see some effects of the government shutdown. However, it was business as usual. The window at the gate was manned and I saw no evidence of neglect or damage as has happened in some other federal locations.

We did see this hawk looking at us a little bit like “You lookin’ at me?” I see only one leg here which I found interesting.


There are so many geese! These seemed to be marching across the hilltop.


The presence of birders alerted me to these guys. They might be Dunlins (?). I’d be happy for someone to verify or correct this. It was lots of fun to watch them scurry and scrounge.
