Dunlins pass rather quickly through Ontario in May but linger on their southward journey to their wintering areas along the Atlantic and Gulf coast of America. By fall, they are quite plain in colour but live up to their former names of “Red-backed Sandpiper” and “Blackheart Sandpiper” in spring.
The 10 am group had a good look at one today.
The sun brought out the turtles:
10 am group:
The surf crashes, and recedes,
As if caught in some eternal dance.
In, and out, and back in, and back out again.
A dance that never ceases to soothe my aching soul. – Codyos Vladimiros
