Last March, when I was checking a new location for me, I found a flock of Sanderlings, a bird I’d never seen in winter before. I guessed maybe they overwinter every year.
Today in the same place I found a flock of the same species. Have they returned for the winter?

Just up the coast is a similar spot with a wintering flock of Dunlin. Rivals.
Let’s get ready to Rumble !
Maybe they already hammered out negotiations at some calidris territorial summit and have agreed to stay out of each others way. For now.
