Although I have not had as much time as I would like to get out and bird, now that the oppressive heat is gone, my wife and I have been out kayaking. Just a few minutes down the road is Dead Creek, a favorite spot of mine for hiking and birding, and now for kayaking. As the water level drops in late summer, it becomes a spot to find lots of shorebirds. The marsh creates a lot of boundary habitats, with brush and boreal, reeds and open water, along with mud flats.

|Thinking Lesser, by the calls and by good looks, but not photos while feeding.|
|Amazing with such close looks from 8 feet away, how crummy a shot can come out with that harsh noon sun. Looks are more important though :)|
