Squawking Willet

We went to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge over the weekend. It was a very gray overcast day. Which worked for closeup images, but was dull for subjects in the distance. But it was a fun day out anyway. This is the first time we have been here since they reopened the completed fixed Wildlife Drive. Before you only could use a very small section then had to turn around. I was surprised to see so many Black Skimmers in large groups. It was so windy it was hard to open the car door, so what was flying usually had a hard time getting where they were trying to go. Some just blew sideways or had very erratic flights. Very difficult to smoothly track in flight subjects. So a lot of my images were of subjects on the ground or in the water. I saw this Willet on a mound in front of some grasses. It posed for a while so I got quite a few images. Shot at 400mm with a 1.4x teleconverter.Willet v2 Brig_v1_43G0687Willet v2 Brig 5 17_43G0690Willet v7 brig 5_17_43G0689
