Salt & Pepper

Sean Graesser took this terrific photo of a flock of Dunlin (Calidris alpina) recently on one of our beaches.

He said he loves the salt and pepper look these birds have as they are changing over to full breeding plumage. Shorebirds need rest, and allowing these various groups space and peace is very important on their biological and geographical journeys.
