Evasive...

...maneuvers!


A Western Sandpiper (Calidris mauri) trying to avoid the talons of a Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus).  (It worked!)  Photographed 11 July 2015 at Salmon Creek Beach.

Earlier in the day I watched a large flock of Western Sandpipers flying over the tidal flats in Bodega Harbor.  You can see why they stick together!
