Dunlin by Ryser915 Dunlin by Ryser915
Often forming massive flocks, Dunlin breed in the northernmost regions of North American, Europe, and Asia. They spend their winters along most coasts in the northern hemisphere, including here in Massachusetts. I slid up to this bird on my stomach, as it roosted on a small mound of sand with several hundred other shorebirds. Shorebirds can become incredibly aclimated to your presence with a slow, low, calm approach. I was so close to this flock, that at one point three Semipalmated Sandpipers were roosting up against my left leg as I lay on my stomach!
