Continuos with my ABC Wednesday blog where I described my walk through the Great Flat Pond Trail at South Cape State Park of Cape Cod, here I show the Willet that I saw when I continued my walk between the beach and the Sedge Lot Pond. The trail took me through the sand dunes along the coast and I could have a good view to the Sedge Lot Pond inland. At this time of the year, we can see a lot of migratory birds. A large flock of mute swans were at the lake. I have shown photographs of them in flight last year at Camera-Critters #63.
Notice the very clear marking on the body and the broad white wingstripe on the wings, exactly as described in the Sibley Guide for adult breeding eastern willet (Apr-Aug).
