Presqu'ile Provincial Park Shorebirds - September 2016

Juvenile Short-billed Dowitcher at Owen Point in Presqu'ile Provincial Park on Lake Ontario. I waded across to Gull Island. Walked around the island and settled in to watch the shorebirds. It was quiet with no disturbance as they fed continuously. 13 September 2016.
