I love this picture of Dad looking down at you.  Gorgeous pic of Em with her feathers ruffled in the wind in an earlier pic. Dad drew a beauty.

Dad's beak healing and can keep strong enough is the main thing. It will take quite a while for the beak to form new layers and remove the deformity.

We went for a walk on Grassy Point & the tide was really high!
i am not used to seeing so much of the shore covered in water.
The rocks all looked funny.
They had strange markings on them that i hadn*t remembered seeing before.
Then i realized they were all napping Birds!
i*m hoping wren will help me identify some of these that i don*t know.
Well she did!
& thank you!
Turned out i knew very little, ha ha.

Wonderful photos, booni!  I love the small shorebirds but they can be hard to identify. I only ever see the Black-bellied Plover when it is in breeding plumage and the belly truly is black -  and I *never* recognize them when they are in their winter plumage.
