Separation Lake Birding April 11, 2021

A fantastic morning there. Most of the photos are flight shots because I sat right where many species fly between ponds. A Long-billed Curlew flew directly over my head without making a sound half way through the morning, this is my first record for Separation Lake ever and the first I’ve seen in the region in several years so definitely a highlight.
