Christine Kline and I were birding Lake Jacomo yesterday afternoon, on a beautiful breezy day.  Not much happening on the lake….a couple male buffleheads, a single ring-gilled gull, a few cormorants in flight, plenty of TV’s aloft,  and bluebirds a-courtin’ in the trees.

 Most vexing was a flock of peeps.  I’ll admit I’m not the best at ID’ing them, but luckily Christine had her camera and got some decent photos.  There are a variety of peeps, as you can see from the pictures,  but sizes were all quite similar.

The first photo was taken from a distance, the second is quite a bit closer, and after we flushed them, there is one shot of a few in flight.

Any help with IDs would be appreciated.

Have a great day, all   ;-)
