I drove down to the end of Park Point and arrived shortly before sunrise. A few minutes before dawn I noticed a Merlin catch a Slate Colored Junco. Photographic conditions were tough as the sun was still about 10 minutes from popping above the horizon …
Once the sun came up I noticed some American Golden Plovers out on the ball fields having breakfast. I was able to get closer than normal because the sun was right behind me (sunup). Note the sun reflected in the plovers eyes. They could not see me as I approached out of the sun!
While walking back to the car I saw a Red Fox in the distance. It took a while, but finally I managed to gain a location where I could watch “red” without spooking her. Twas neat to watch the fox do its morning grooming and occasionally play with some sticks.
