Dunlin running towards me when I was lying on the sand. Dunlin is a litle and very cute bird but I guess if you are size of sandpiper you would not like to see the dunlin chargin on you. Although little it is stocky and masively built so even bigger birds run away from charging dunlin.
Portrait of dunlin taken on Jones beach We visited West End of Jones looking for some harlequin ducks but instead on the sandy penisnula near coast guard station we found large flock of dunlins. They were very active diging in the wet sand and trying to eat as much as posible befroe the tide has risen. While the water was flooding the beach they are getting closer and closer to me so I could take some pictures of those adorable birds.
