Yesterday I drove out to Merritt Island for the morning. It was a little slow, but it was still a pretty good morning. Even though I see Least Sandpipers frequently there, I rarely get to see them up close and in good light. Well yesterday I finally got some nice shots of these wonderful birds. Black-necked Stilts are breeding here, so it was fun to see them just about everywhere, but it was also nice to see American Avocets in breeding plumage. Even the Willets were sporting their new breeding looks.
