Dunlin

This Dunlin was sifting through the beach sand this morning with its bill in search of horseshoe crab eggs, a seemingly difficult task since the eggs are about the size of a sand grain.  But these birds are very good at their craft noted by the two eggs it holds in its bill with very little sand mixed in.  Could so easily have been green eggs and sand!
