Christine Kline and I were birding Lake Jacomo yesterday afternoon, on a beautiful breezy day. Not much happening on the lakeÖ.a couple male buffleheads, a single ring-gilled gull, a few cormorants in flight, plenty of TVís aloft, and bluebirds a-courtiní in the trees.
Most vexing was a flock of peeps. Iíll admit Iím not the best at IDíing 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 ;-)
