Late Summer on the Umpqua

Elkton is located right on the banks of the Umpqua River, and the city has a small park, the Alfred S. Tyson Park, that provides easy access to the river.  Being late in the year, and without rain, it’s easy to walk around on the rocks and in my case look for birds.  This first photo is of a Common Merganser and a Spotted Sandpiper. The Sandpiper invaded the Merganser’s area for just a quick second and I was lucky enough to capture moment.
