Thanks Chris - there's nothing like clean air, early morning light and still water to make birds look brilliant.

Unfortunately that was all the birding I got on this trip, and it looks like it may be all the Conference Birding for a good while given the way the Coronavirus is affecting global travel, so as a bonus here's a couple of video clips (with a delay to reboot my laptop):

The first is of a flight of Snow Geese coming in to roost at Sherman Island:

The second is the wader roost featuring Marbled Godwits, American Avocets and one or two others

The third is a Song Sparrow, which was singing lustily as I headed back to the road.
