I am a little late but I want to post this Ruddy Turnstone for World Shorebirds Day which was September 4 – 6. About half the world’s shorebird populations are in decline and with climate change and rising sea levels habitat loss is happening at a faster rate than ever before.
Shorebirds are what sparked me into getting into bird photography and they got me into sand crawling, mud-sliding and sitting quietly in lagoons while the shorebirds rested, preened, foraged and interacted with the other shorebirds around them.
I can’t imagine a world without them.
Life is good.
PS – I’m hitting the road this morning. I will post when I can!
