As the raindrops begin to fall a small flock of four Solitary Sandpipers landed in the creek at the mouth and begin to feed and chase each other. Despite the steadily increasing rainfall and decreasing light I managed several keeper digiscoped images.
After a half-hour of rain the skies cleared a bit and allowed me at least a dry walk back to the car. A pair of Common Yellowthroats inspected me from the cover of a Tamarack Tree while somewhere in the distance an Alder Flycatcher called its 'fee-bI!' song. A pair of Osprey flew overhead but lighting was poor for photography so I didn't bother.
Returning to the car I drove back to the condo, stopping just long enough to watch a Common Loon swim out in the middle of Intermediate Lake just south of Central Lake.
