Follow The Herd?

An image of a group of birds all heading in the same direction – hunting for sustenance in the Far North during their breeding season.  But, can you spot the “odd man out”?  I am not sure why, but I am always thrilled when I can get a shot with more than one species together  !?!?!?

Yes the group is a flock of Stilt Sandpipers (Calidris himantopus) but there is a stow-away in their midst, a Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa malanoleuca)……


But he soon remedied the situation!  Was it that he was found out or did he just realize that “this isn’t my type!”?
