Sanderlings are one of the more common sandpipers frequently seen running along the shore line to avoid waves while feeding. I found them in very large numbers on Nickerson Beach Friday afternoon and for a while they distracted me from the oystercatchers. Getting them in flight is tricky yet can be very rewarding. There top side has beautifle markings while there underside is white and if you are lucky enough to photograph it against the dark sea the result can be quite stunning. In the first image both happened and I'm not complaining. Photographing an individual is quite challenging as they are fast and maneuverable making them a fun challenge for me.

I have never seen these birds. They look unpredictable and small, making them very difficult subjects. You have done very well with your images! Thanks for sharing.

Oh my, I love that first one Morris. I think it's truly delightful--a real cheery picture!

I had my first intro to them late last summer and would agree they are fast-movers and flyers. You did a fine job catching their aerial antics. Despite the shade, I like the way you composed the last too; the surf in the background definitely adds value.

Thanks for posting.

Thank you Kim,
I'm using fill flash and that's why the shaded side is not black
