Flock of Black Turnstone

Flock of Black Turnstone, Arenaria melanocephala, in flight. Mission River. Wow. The flock would change directions on a dime, nearly all the birds in unison. Sometimes perpendicular to you, they would almost disappear, only to turn parallel, exposing their white bellies and contrasting black heads. I could have watched then for hours.
