Fall Falls at the Beach
Green Heron (Butorides virescens) which took offense to us walking on the beach, and flew up to the cliff and gave us the hairy eyeball before flying off. These birds rarely use the beach, but we often see them in the rocks on the jetties or harbor.
Least Sandpiper if the yellow legs are diagnostic.
Incidentally, the Ospreys are still here, I saw at least one in the distance.
Painted Lady. There was also a single beat up specimen of the Spicebush Butterfly, but, the picture was interfered with by an ugly leaf.
