I lamented earlier today that the most interesting thing I found to photograph this morning was a Blue Jay. Well, I made a phone call this afternoon and walked outside during the call, which I often do for calls that do not require me to write anything down. The summer rains have not yet come, and the lake level is very low, leaving beautiful, mucky, wet soil. Well, I don't think it's beautiful, but this Solitary Sandpiper apparently did. He was having a blast foraging while I was on the phone. So as soon as I got off the phone, I ran back in, got my camera, and spent about 5 minutes photographing him in terrible light (around 2:30pm)--he's the first I've seen here. I had to over-expose by about a stop to get even this shot, but I'll take it. I also heard and then saw a Killdeer that also was here, and a Snowy Egret flew by. With the Solitary Sandpiper sighting, my species count for my office area rose to 65. So my birding day certainly improved with just one visitor.
