Birds in Flight

During an early morning walk along the shore of the West End of Jones Beach I came upon a flock (is that the correct term?) of Semipalmated Sandpipers. The have protected areas all along the southern ocean beaches of Long Island. Very skittish little guys, I did manage to catch them while they were scampering around on the sand, but once one spotted me they took off… and what a sight! They put on quite a show!
