It was still early morn- ing; that's why the birds appear colored in such golden tones.
We were fortunate to find several more pairs and individuals.
Les & I speculated that these must be breeding pairs and that those heading further north have left.
They do not appear to be particularly wary of people provided you do not approach them in a direct line. However, if you wait too long to set up your tripod and camera, you will find that they will slowly
walk away from you.
By the way, the tripod leg covers I made worked very well. My hands stayed warm and the tripod, when carried, was easier on my shoulders.
