Default Some shorebirds for a change

Went out to a beach near the coast yesterday to see if I could get some decent shots of shorebirds for a change. The tide was way out, so I walked out onto the tide flats and set up my tripod and just waited. As the tide came in, so did the birds, and before long I had them all around me.. Had dunlin almost literally at my feet, and some of the others not much farther away. Here's a sampling of what I got. All are in breeding plumage, so much more colorful than their drab winter garb...

Red knot, a "lifer" bird for me... this one was no more than about 40 feet away...



Ruddy turnstone... have seen and photographed these before, but they were badly backlit and at a distance, not 50-60 feet away like this little guy....



Dunlin in breeding plumage, This image is uncropped, from about 12 feet away.

G'day Rocky

Yep - a bit different from your usual BIF pics but goodies none-the-less
I'm also impressed that you care enough to name all your subjects correctly for us viewers

Thanks, Phil! I figure there are folks here who've never seen or heard of these birds, so including their names is the least I can do!
