Thanks for the kind comments...this is the first time they have been seen up at Damon Pt, Grays Harbor, WA since 2006. They normally live in the Arctic, Siberia, Greenland and way up northern Alaska but it is said that they have run out of food up there so they are flying further south for chow. There were about 8 of them here...they are beautiful.

That one balancing on that stick :-) What an act :-) I notice they sit around and rest on one leg for the day. Nothing wrong with his ears.
