Dunlin (Calidris alpina)

The commonest small wader found along the coast. It has a slightly down-curved bill and a distinctive black belly patch in breeding plumage. It feeds in flocks in winter, sometimes numbering thousands, roosting on nearby fields, saltmarshes and shore when the tide is high. (RSPB)

  5. What an energetic little bird! I love to watch them splashing around taking a bath. Our American Robins really love the water and they will line up at the bird bath to have a good splash!
