Purple Finches & Purple Sandpipers?

Over the last two weeks, I had a nice holiday break and was able to get some birding in! I typically try to go birding on weekends --- so these most recent photos may have spanned the last 2-3 weekends! Last weekend I had tried for the Purple Sandpipers and the Hoary Redpolls and dipped on both of them!  Luckily, I did see a nice male Purple Finch at a house feeder along the road the borders the NE side of Hillman Marsh. 

Today, I tried again for the two target species, as I was convinced that my bad luck could not extend two weekends in a row and amazingly - both target species were found!

I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Hopefully 2021 will be better than 2020!
Good birding,
