Birds of a Feather

We visited the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge last week, taking the afternoon to walk the trails and enjoy the high tide along the boardwalk. On the way back from the viewing platform at the end of the boardwalk, we stopped and talked with a group of four birdwatchers (seen on the left side of the photo).

They were keenly focused on a flock of small shorebirds we could barely see with the naked eye, and apparently there was one teeny bird  the multitude of teeny birds that was the source of many “well I think it’s…” and “maybe it’s a…” and “well if you look at this it’s probably a…” and was all very interesting and amusing at the same time. It was really very cool that they let us in on their conversation.

The details: Fujifilm X-E2, 18-55mm lens @50mm. ISO 200, 1/900th @f4.
