These tragic photo's illustrate the break-down of Peace negotiations in Brooklyn. Is this the end?

Various related shore birds meet, and vow to end hostilities. Willet, Greater Yellow legs and Dowitchers begin discussions.

A neutral party respected by all, An American Oyster Catcher agree's to mediate

Tensions build. A Black Bellied Plover arrives from the Plover Group. New issues are on the table

A heated word, an ugly remark here, an insult there, and negotiations break-down completely

Hope remains, however tenious, as the Plover and Willet, although avoiding eye contact, still remain talking to each other.

Will these negotiations be resumed? Will peace between these birds finally take root? Will I visit a psychiatrist before I lose it all? Only time will tell.

Actually, the plover looks like it's ready to go on a date. The Willet may simply be shy. Very entertaining, dave. My favorite time was when the Oyster Catcher arrived (looks like Henry Kissinger)

This is one of those times that I couldn't get close to the birds. They actually flew away when I reached about 150 feet. But the Willet (apparently the word is out in the Willet clan, that I'm just a punk) and the Plover actually did seem to like each other's company...:lol:
