Shorebirds: Dunlin

Photo of Dunlin

Most shorebirds vacate New England by November, but Dunlin can be found throughout the white season, foraging in small flocks on coastal beaches and mudflats. I identified my first flock of Dunlin in early March of 2012 in Kennebunkport, Maine.  I photographed today's feature bird in Biddeford Pool on September 22, 2013.
