Chainsaw Thursday

I didn't end up playing volleyball last night since it rained, but I guess some people went out. I'll go next time. This afternoon I got quite a few trees cut down from the right side of that picture yesterday. The ducks just sat there while I sawed.
There's really not much going on right now to tell you about, so I'll just post a couple of pictures.
I don't think I've shown you one of these birds yet. This is a Ruddy Turnstone. They are shorebirds that come here for the winter. They breed somewhere else. There are hundreds of them around. There's a few other winter visitors right now like 11 northern pintail ducks, a green-winged teal, some wandering tattlers, pharalopes and a couple other birds. The new ducks probably won't stay too long.
I took this picture from the fuel pier a few weeks ago. That's Eastern Island in the background.

Aren't spinner dolphins just the best? They're way better than bottle nosed.

I had no idea that ducks you find in North Dakota like pintails and teal were found in the middle of the pacific. Thats pretty cool.

The ducks usually fly in when a storm comes through. I don't know if they could make it without that extra wind.

And spinner dolphins are pretty fun to watch.
