Description

OK, I will test your patience with some scans of some old, marginal 35 mm slides. @gcwarbler had retained many boxes of some of my culled slides from 20-30 years ago. I have enough to keep me busy for many weeks at least with scanning, etc. (thanks Chuck….I think!). These will all be of records I had not posted to iNat previously. Sorry for the poor quality of most of these but they are all I have. This is the first installment of many to come.

Description from Wikipedia

The suborder Lari is the part of the order Charadriiformes which includes the gulls, terns, skuas and skimmers, with the waders and snipes making up the rest of the order. Following recent research, the auks are now placed into the Lari too; the family Glareolidae (pratincoles and coursers) might constitute a distinct suborder. Sometimes, the buttonquails are also placed here, but the molecular data and fossil record rather suggests them be a quite basal offshoot along...
