It wasn't exactly labor. Unless you count it as a labor of love. It was mostly blue-winged teal though so maybe that's stretching it.
This was a pretty average flock. It doesn't look that big, though it's actually 50-60 birds.
A flock of 10 Forster's terns came by close.
A buff-breasted sandpiper was an ironic addition after the very chaseable one close to the house.
4 Black-bellied plovers flew past at close range as well, at least 2 still in pretty full breeding plumage.
