Shore Birds

A shorebird is a migratory bird that often travels extremely long distances in one flight at high altitude.  Often the migration path for summer and winter are different.  Their looks are a representation of their habitat.  Long legs for wading or long bills for digging out from beneath mud etc.

Even though some of my birds are not portfolio worthy I continue to keep them for a reference record for me in my birding  journey.  It’s good to have something to refer back to for comparison and identification.
