Sandpipers. This was taken in Longbeach Wa, were there is one of the two nesting sites for Snowy Plovers in Wa. I hiked for a couple miles on a trail marked to keep you on the trail and out of the nesting habitat. I search diligently while I slowly went down the trail hoping to get a shot of the Snowy Plover. I did not see a one. The trail lead to the beach where the protection markers ended. As I came over the hill....what did I see? Hundreds of Sandpipers, I mistakenly thought I had found a bunch of Snowy Plovers. Infact there was a mix of Semipalmated Plovers and Sandpipers.
