Here's the scoop on this one that I photographed a few hours ago. We spotted a flock of 20 along the St. Lawrence. We don't get many here so this was a nice number. I went back later in the day to see if I could get them in better light and managed to be able to work with three individuals. I eventually worked up to about 15 feet (they didn't care) and had them quietly for 20 minutes. That's the beauty of shorebirds. The juveniles are often very forgiving of your presence.

Thanks Sue. It was a real treat to be so close to the birds for so long.
