These ones are dowitchers (as pointed out by JTF), but still a type of sandpiper

Interesting study of flocking shorebirds Trevor.
My favorite, as you might know, is the backlit image. The light through the wings is a beautiful highlight for the rest of the underexposed body.

Great captures, Trevor. It's amazing there aren't some mid-air collisions, isn't it?

(Thanks for the comments on my "Just going for it" thread. Thought it had run its course and hadn't checked for awhile. Didn't want to send it back to the top.)
