I can’t even begin to tell you how over the MOON I feel after seeing my very first Dunlins today!!
Am I ever glad, I didn’t.
A HUGE flock of Sanderlings feeding among the gulls greeted me as I stepped onto Bank Street Beach.
They made me forget everything.
Everything but THEM.
Them, and their glorious flight, their playfulness and liveliness against a cold, iced-in landscape.
These two tiny birds along the shoreline that caught my attention.
And so connected to each other as they searched for food along the shore among the mounds of slipper shells.
They didn’t seem as skittery with my presence as the Sanderlings, who kept flying off.
In fact they actually seemed as interested in me, as I was in them.
On a day when I so did not want to face “the grays”.
Be warm, cuddle each other close thru’ this night.
And be well. ❤ ❤
