I spent part of my day today at Ft. Niobrara NWR. Early in the day it was extremely windy and the blowing sand was getting on everything...me and the camera gear. Birds were singing in areas, but they weren't showing themselves at all. Frustrated, I went back to the motel. Went back in the early evening and things were much pleasant.
Afternoon photos included this Upland sandpiper
And this Common nighthawk
After tolerating me and the clicking camera, he voiced his displeasure
