  1. I have always loved the way these birds fly this way and that..and back and forth visually. I didn’t know their name. thank you.

  2. Thank you Ken, especially for the video! The still photos just can’t express the rush I’m imagining it feels like to watch the Dunlin up close. What a thrill. I know I felt my heart beating faster with excitement just watching the video. I hadn’t heard of Dunlin before so thank you for that too.
