Sudden Riches

By tonyguitar
After days and days of nothing new, an embarrassment of riches flew in as a flock of tiny shore birds. Seemed like they were about 4 inches long to my eye. The closest I could find was the Semipalmated sandpiper at 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 inches in size. So Semi-palmated sandpipers they are until someone knows of a better ident. Could be they are al juniors. Click Large for the eye.

Yes, a flock of about 30 to 40. They all moved as one. Much as a school of fish would. Most I could get in one photo was 7 or eight. The More birds in a picture the weaker the image becomes. TG
