Blueberrying by the harbor

This afternoon, we picked a few pints of blueberries and enjoyed the local shorebird parade.

This is, I think, a lesser yellowlegs. Or a greater yellowlegs. Or a yellow lesserthangreaterlegs? Well, anyway, it has yellow legs. Here’s a helpful identification page on Puget Sound shorebirds. Now I know this bird is not a sandpiper, which is what I’ve been wrongfully calling it.

P.S. The blueberries are on late this year, and there’s plenty left to pick!
