Shorebirds and a Tern

I came back from a 4-day canoeing trip yesterday only to learn that there had been a White-winged Tern found near St. John's. After a rushed drive back I was happy to see the bird for myself:


The canoe trip didn't involve much dedicated birding - we followed the Ragged Harbour river downstream to the Ragged Harbour community.

Check out this time lapse I made of the sunset and rising tide from one of our campsites:

The nearby community of Musgrave harbour was a great spot for shorebirds. One highlight was a juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper:

Juvenile Short-billed Dowitchers always excite me with their colourful orange plumage:



A Hudsonian Godwit was an unexpected find for August - I made sure to see the dark underwings to prove that it wasn't the rarer but very similar looking Black-tailed Godwit:

A sick Black-legged Kittiwake offered me my best view yet of this species while I was studying two nearby dowitchers.
