Confusion in Flight
Confusion in Flight

Well I am back from Cordova. . . Quite an amazing event - one definitely worth seeing.

As Cordova is located right along the Copper River Delta, each year millions of shorebirds flock to the area along their migration route. I was able to photograph along the flats (mostly in the Hartney Bay) area for a little while, and it was amazing to see the thousands and thousands of shorebirds (mostly Western Sandpipers) flocking through in clouds.

As you can see this is part of a flock of flock of Western Sandpipers.

Also. . .to make this entry a little longer (haha) I am hoping to do some changes to this photoblog here pretty soon (as it is reaching its one year date) and I may end up moving it completely to a new URL with a new theme and new subjects. . .so keep checking back :P

  • Wonderful. I love the depth of field in this, isolating a few birds out of the flock.
