Description

The tide was out, and although I could see some movement of shorebirds far out, these were the only ones that came within my photographic range. I believe, but could be wrong, that these are mainly surfbirds, and one dowitcher.

Description from Wikipedia

The calidrids or typical waders are a group of Arctic-breeding, strongly migratory wading birds. These birds form huge mixed flocks on coasts and estuaries in winter. They are the typical "sandpipers", small to medium-sized, long-winged and relatively short-billed.
