Shorebirds at 63rd Street Beach

A quick evening stop was rewarded with two Willets.  I was able to lay down in the sand behind a dune and get views from about 15 feet away of these two birds.  A nearby American Coot also said hello.  I don’t think I ever fully appreciated how odd coots look when walking on land. My full eBird checklist is here.
