Happy Monday, enjoy your day!
My wild bird this week is the Dunlin. These images are mostly from my trip to Washington State but I have seen the Dunlin in Maryland, Delaware and Florida. They are shorebirds with a short neck, bright red back and a black belly. The black belly appears during the breeding season. Their legs and bills are black.
Their foraging has been compared to a sewing machine, with their bills going up and down picking up small food and insects.
I have seen large flocks of the Dunlins, they can be found on coastal mudflats or sandy beaches.
As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.
My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.
