Huntley Meadows this morning

A little blue heron was on the back part of the great marsh.

Nearby, a large number of solitary sandpipers kept busy.

A fellow birder spotted this nearby snipe who was leisurely probing the mud almost in front of us.

Leaving the boardwalk, I found this frog when a family pointed it out to their small child. Here he is in full "ribbit," throad swelled out to make a big sound.

Betsy,
Nice pictures. I especially like the one of the Least Sandpiper. We have one that has over wintered here the last 2 winters. He/She has become quite a celebrety as overwintering Least Sandpipers are virtually unheard of in PA. I've named Her/Him "Leslie" as I have known both men and women with that name.
