· Shorebirds of Las Galinas

My birder-extraordinaire pal Jeanne Marie and her husband Jim (no slouch himself) took me out for a nice morning of birding at the Las Galinas wastewater treatment facility, which is much nicer than its name implies. With thier help I saw tons of birds that I either hadn't seen before or wouldn't have been able to identify, esp. lots of lovely shorebirds and ducks. I'll be posting more sketches of the birds we saw in the coming weeks (expect the next Bird Brain to be full of stuff from this one trip alone). Here are two of the shorebird species we saw, the Black-necked Stilt and the American Avocet.
