While not even close in size these two different birds wander the shoreline close to each other. Neither pays any attention to the other.

The Willet is a little bigger than the pipers that run a groups. Most times it’s no more than two at a time. You always know they are coming in by the fast whistling of their wings. A frenzied flight, then a casual stroll on the beach. A complete contradiction.

When we find the big Pelican standing on the beach it’s a sign something is happening in the water. Dolphin is the most common reason, but I have seen sharks in shallows which is a good reason to get to the sand.
