These birds hunt in mated pairs. They don't flock up except for migrations. Well within a few hundred yards I counted four pair, happily hunting for marine worms (and anything else that wasn't nailed down). I've never seen so many of them hunting at the same time. In picture one you can make out a Semi-Palminated Plover and a small Sandpiper next to the Heron.

Much thanks!

I had quite a few opportunities to capture these birds.

Up until I started shooting in Brooklyn (of all places) I would rarely encounter them. But there were eight of them there on Thursday. I had a good day.

I would have liked the third image, but for some reason I got red-eye reduction...:lol:
