Fireworks in Black & White

A fireworks display courtesy of a flock of shorebirds and conducted by a Peregrine Falcon, who was really dipping more than diving in this run.

 

If shorebirds had highly reflective red and green plumage this would be an awesome spectacle.

 

I initially thought these were thousands of little sandpipers but when a flock flew in front of me I saw Willets, Godwits, Plovers, etc... pretty much all the regular shorebirds were represented.

 

Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
