Power Outage Birding

After four days w/o power, electricity finally returned yesterday to the Northland … including the heavens! Last night, although not a major dance by the Northern Lights, I captured my first even meteor in combination with the Aurora Borealis! The rest of my images were taken over the past few days. Even though we were without power, a true wildlife photographer finds the ability through strategic coffee shop visits to keep camera batteries charged.  🙂

    1. I agree that the smaller shorebirds are “Least Sandpipers” (thanks), but I still think the larger bird in the background (2nd photo) is a Lesser Yellowlegs, but I am by no means certain.
