Wading Birds at Salines d’Orient

Right now, there are very few birds in many parts of Salines d’Orient, but birds can be found by exploring the mud flats that are often covered in water during wetter times. Below are some photos from visits over the last week, including several of black-necked stilts and Hudsonian whimbrels.

Soon, with the start of the nesting season, this area will be home to very well camouflaged bird nests, so walking around there is not recommended. Of course, having seen mongoose there recently, humans aren’t the only threat to these nests.
