Dunlins are one of the most common sandpiper like birds found in the Carolina estuaries. These small birds with longish, drooping bills scurry about on mud flats and through oyster beds looking for a quick meal at low tide. They are one of the more approachable birds found along the coast, especially when that approach is from the water via a kayak or canoe. Here’s a few photos from a recent early morning paddle.
Thanks for all of your work on this web page. I am looking forward to reading more of your posts in the future.
