The month of June, as is normally the case, was a difficult birding month but I was able to register a year bird, a Western Sandpiper72. This bird was decked out in its breeding plumage splendor with splashes of reddish brown on the crowned and back. This bird along with a Pied-billed Grebe75 made up the 72nd and 73rd birds of my 2017 Photographic Big Year challenge.
