On October 23rd I posted a photo of a flock of shorebirds and challenged my readers to take a crack at identifying the species.
Here is the answer: There are 7 species in this flock of shorebirds. Sanderling, Red-Knot, Ruddy Turnstone, Dunlin, Black-bellied Plover, American Golden Plover and Hudsonian Godwit.
Now, that I have listed the species and provided a cropped photo for a closer look, the juvenile Hudsonian Godwit is now easily seen. Try and see if you could find the others; the American Golden Plover is in this cropped photo.
