Sanderling Steals the Show
Ironically, with Avocets and full frame shots of Reddish Egrets in abundance, one of my favorite photos from last weekend’s FeatherFest ground level field trip on Saturday was this little Sanderling. I’m always looking for small shorebirds when they are bathing and preening trying to get their beaks sticking straight up in the air. Scored with this one.
