In flight and at rest

Sanderlings (Calidris alba), 28 April 2018.  Their primary spring migration window in California is from late April-mid May.  They're headed north to nest on high-arctic tundra.  Only 30-40 degrees of latitude to go!

[Note that they're molting into breeding plumagelook for the spiffy black and rufous feathers replacing the worn gray feathers of winter.]
