These are Red knots. Truly a marvelous bird.They travel over 9000 miles to migrate, from the Artic to the tip of South America, stopping to feed on their way. I love their coloring. Funny maybe because I also have red hair...hahah..
they stop on the coasts to feed on horseshoe crab eggs, and they always arrive at just the right time, when the horseshoe crab has laid their eggs...
I will show you my sketches at another post :)
