Huge Flock of Wintering Willets
A huge flock of Willets (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus), in their Winter colors, adopts a Whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus) or two and a Marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa), all rising up in unison forming a zig zagging cloud of wings, confounding hungry hawks. Tijuana Estuarine Preserve, San Diego, California
