Florida/Texas road trip bird ID help #16

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

so, time for the grand finale. There was some time left between quick Anahuac visit (I did only Willows Trail + Shoveler Pond) and the flight back from Houston, so I planned a circular route Houston - Anahuac - Galveston via ferry - IAH airport). And on the way, there was this interesting hotspot called Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary (got beach parking permit at local store) which proved to be a gem! Like 10000 of birds in one not so big location, totally totally overwhelming, a short beach walk, too bad I only had 1,5 hours. Randomly took 160 photos of the shorebirds...
Will now try to select best photos of different birds so I can go through all the photos efficiently...

1) First, is this a Caspian Tern??
Location:  Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, TX




2) Cutey - can this be anything other than Snowy Plover?
Location:  Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, TX





3) Now that's a useful shot - left - Dunlin, center - Sanderling, right - Black-bellied Plover? + a photo of dunlins and a Black-bellied.
Location:  Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, TX
