I’ve been watching the spotted sandpipers every day at the lake. In their non-breeding plumage, they actually don’t have spots, but these small birds still blend well with the rocks at the water’s edge. They move quickly along the shore foraging, and would be difficult to spot except that they seem to call every time they take flight.

This root of a tree stump had a cavity that reminded me of a nest, so I placed three rock “eggs” in it a year and a half ago. Since that time, it has been deep under water for two lengthy periods, emerging today as the level of the lake drops again. All covered in a layer of silt from the last 5 months, but still just where I placed them. The original post is here.
