Photography of Birds – Set # 39
Set # 39
These birds forage on muddy, picking up food by sight, often jabbing like the dowitchers with which they often associate. They mainly eat insects and other invertebrates.
This species will consume a wide variety of vegetable material and small aquatic creatures. They forage beside or in the water, sometimes walking on lilypads or upending in the water to feed.
Thank you, Susan. 🙂
I have never had the pleasure of seeing this sandpiper, what a beauty. And this common moorhen photo is fantastic. Great fun here today, HJ, thank you.
Thanks, my dear friend. 🙂
Thanks so much, Indira. 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Nice to see a flock of the sandpipers together, and the Moorhen is so close to the American Coot in the same family.
Thank you very much, Jane. 🙂
Two wonderful photos, HJ! 🙂
Thank you, Donna. 🙂
Those birds look so happy in the cool water 🐦
That’s the perfect habitat for them! Thanks, JoAnn. 🙂
