  1. All beautiful, Bob. I’m especially impressed that you can identify the sandpipers. I just can’t seem to get close enough, even with my binoculars. They are so similar.

    • Thanks, Cindy, but I have trouble identifying sandpipers, too. The best way for me is to get a picture, then pour over my Sibley’s and Stokes bird guides. You’re right, they’re so much alike.
