A Solitary Sandpiper wading in the shallow water by the first pavilion.

I like the low water because it attracts birds I don't normally see here.

But the downside of low water levels is that it traps a lot of the food chain that the birds depend on, like Mosquitofish and Apple Snails.

Then if the flats dry completely, the trapped food chain is extinguished.
