Over the last several years I have come to enjoy watching birds. These days, as summer is taking her last breaths, some migrating shorebirds spend time along the beach in Summerside. I enjoy standing in silence along the shoreline photographing the migrants and some of the full time island birds. Sometimes the results are curious.
This mallard had a perfect reflection in a blue stream.
As she proceeded up the stream, the reflection of the reeds on the water changed the scene entirely.
Sometimes I take photos facing into the sun to see silhouettes. These crows were such a photo.
The beach in Summerside provides perfect camouflage for some of the little shorebirds such as Semi-palmated Plovers. Can you find two of the little birds among the stones along the shoreline?
Taking photos of water while facing into the sun results in a silver setting for bird silhouettes. The Great Blue Heron is unmistakable.
The Greater Yellowlegs is not quite as easy to identify.
This is a Black-bellied Plover which I had seen earlier otherwise I would never have been able to identify it among the sparkles.
Sometimes you just want to have all your ducks in a row.
I mistakenly called the crows ravens. Thank you to https://her55kim.blogspot.com/ for the correction.
My husband and I hope to go cycling again this week. We’ve had to wait for a hitch for the car so we can attach the bike rack. I will use our daughter’s bike again. My new one isn’t expected for another month.
Tanza at https://www.healthanddynamiclife.com/ asked if there are wild horses on Prince Edward Island. While there are many horses on the island, there aren’t any wild horses. There are such horses on Sable Island off the coast of neighbouring Nova Scotia.
