The Dunlin is a medium-sized sandpiper with black-streaked, red-brown upperparts, conspicuous black belly patch, and streaked breast.

The legs and slightly decurved bill are black. There are a number of subspecies differing mainly in the extent of rufous coloration in the breeding plumage and the bill length. It should, however, be noted that bill length varies between sexes, the females having longer bills than the males.

Birds that breed in Alaska and the Canadian Arctic migrate to the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of North America.

Hello Sky,
Fine capture of the Dunlin in breeding plumage. Great colour and composition, making the slight softness insignificant.

We have Dunlins in our local nature reserve now but we can't get close enough to acheive a shot as good as this.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello SKy,
Nice Dunlin in natural environment. I like this pov and composition. Great to see those waves running in the background. The Dunlin may be a bit soft. Well done image and tfs.

This is a very pretty bird, Sky, and you have captured it very well against the background of a surfing beach.
The image shows its lovely plumage very nicely.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Sky

This is indeed a very beautiful bird and you managed to capture it is a splendid way here.
I must admire the excellent exposure here that led to those nicely visible tones and patterns from its plumage.
The colors are also lovely and the composition you created here is impeccable.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Sky

Lovely pose on your bird Sky. I love the way it is stalking through the water. Lovely POV and framing



Hi Sky,
A nice shot on this Dunlin. The overcast light allowed for excellent colors and detail in the plumage. Well composed and framed. Looks great!

Hi Sky, a nice sharp shot of this guy. The composition is excellent and I thought the exposure on the bird was great but the background might be a little lighter. I have prepared a workshop therefore to provide you with another option.

Thanks, John

Hi Sky.
I like your tender shot which presents to us this cute bird and nice surroundings. Its simple colour palette is so suitable for pictured bird as well as soft light. I also like excellent detals of the bird and DOF. Composition as usual is perfect too. My compliments and TFS.

Hola Sky,
preciosa captura,
bello trabajo y detalles,

Hi Sky,

Sandpiper, yes, Dunlin is news to me. I wonder if these pipers also make it down to the Bay of Fundy! Great clarity here and very nice colours. This Dunlin has its eye on Sky, or is it on the sky... Tfs, J.

Hello Sky,
A well composed presentation!
The bird is captured with fine details in the plumage, effective point of view to show the details...
Cololurs are a bit muted but still the bird stands out well!
