Yeh, thanks addy
they actually became extinct in 1987 and were helped and made a slight comeback to today
It was a privilege seeing them and being that close.

Just read Wikipedia article on that bird and 1987 it became extinct in wild and actually the reason was that the last wild animal was captured then. And now as the captive breeding has succeeded there is again also wild population as the birds have been reintroduded to various locations in SW USA and Mexico.
As a photographer I have to say that one thing that bothers me with these birds is that they all have those id tags on wings. And think I would preferred to see these elsewhere than on man-made structures. But no doubt, I guess it is still quite an experience to see big birds of prey that close.

Nice shot Addy, I like how all the branches "frame" the bird.

And at the end of the morning walk I drove to the salt ponds, which are also known as the flamingo ponds since there is an year-round population of flamingo there. These are shallow and salty water reservoirs which many birds like to feed there.

Common redshank 1

That's a nice set. I especially like #1 for the soft sunlight - if there's such a thing.
I can't tell apart a dunlin from the little stint; and haven't heard of either of them! You seem knowledgeable about birds.

Thanks Sashi.
Actually, for the second set I used Merlin for id. They all look very similar, with differences in size and the small details. I was also sure that both the dunlin and the little stint are actually little stint, but Merlin insisted that the bird in the 2 first photos is dunlin...

Little stints have their breeding range in Europe/Siberia and winter mostly in Africa and western parts of Asia, so in US you can't expect to see this species. Dunlins' range includes also North America, so those you could spot also in US. And if you would see these birds same time, it would be easier to identify these, when I looked up information about the range from Wikipedia, I spotted
picture with both little stint and dunlin.
