I wonder if shrikes will survive if we ever do away with barbed wire fences? :)

I've seen their prey stuck on thorns of trees as well as barbed wire. I guess they'd have to go back to the old methods. Although it might reduce their numbers drastically!! ;)

Where did you see the Snowy Plovers, Delilahae?



I saw them at a beach in Ventura County..The beach is a nesting place for both the Snowy's and also. Least Terns..

The Least Terns were already gone when I saw the Plovers..

I looked everywhere for the Plovers, but everyone pretty much said there weren't anymore around there..

I decided I would keep looking, so I walked pretty far down the beach, up and down the sand dunes..

I was getting ready to head back because it was getting dark..

I walked up a dune, and as I was about to go down it, I just stopped, and looked straight ahead..

There were about 20-30 little birds in the sand, and some were running around near the water's edge..

I just sat down and watched them, and started taking pictures..

I thought ( and was hoping) they were Snowy Plovers.. :)

Finally I got to see my Snowy Plovers I had looked for all summer long..


I know that was a long answer to your question, but now you have all the details..lol.. :)

"I know that was a long answer to your question, but now you have all the details . . . "

That was a lovely story, Delilahae. I almost felt like I was with you.
