Whew! I'm behind — way behind! — in filing my photographs. I had to spend some time on "organizational chores" tonight, but while doing so I came upon this image from about this time last year.
These are Least Sandpipers (Calidris minutilla) at the north end of Bodega Harbor in early September 2012. Note the slightly tapered and downcurved bill and the yellowish legs. I liked the way they were all doing different things. If you're wondering, they're gathered around a rock that's covered with sea lettuce (Ulva sp.) and a few barnacles.
