I would like to say that these guys are as difficult to shoot as Swallows. And how many could I convince of that?

Well, their a heck of a lot easier...

For one thing, there are often a hundred or more to shoot at, for another they travel in predictable curves.

And, while not as pretty, they sure can be cute!In the second image, I get the inpression that they are swimming in water...

The ones taken here are simply moving down the beach to avoid me and the dog. A few, with bold courage backed up by being at least 6 inches long, paused long enough for me to shoot them on the ground. There are actually smaller Shore Birds then the Sanderling, but not many.

Cute little birds......and you got several at a time in flight. Maybe a little less stressful than the Swallows?

Dave, great shots and cool little birds!! I can watch Sanderlings fly around for hours. I'm completely amazed at how they quickly turn in perfect unison like that...almost think there telepathic. What's even more impressive is when a Snipe joins in and makes the same cordinated maneuvers.

From time to time you can have a flock of these shore birds, with half a dozen species. And, yes their a heck of a lot easier than Swallows...:G
