Birds of a Feather

Least Sandpipers

Birds of a feather stay warmer on a cold fall day when they’re closer together.

A flock of Western Sandpipers and a couple of Dunlins (those with the black belly patches — they look practically identical, don’t they?) huddles together in the Salish Sea, on the end of a walkable and bikeable 4 km Iona jetty in the Iona Beach Regional Park, where the Fraser River meets the Strait of Georgia. Iona Island is on Vancouver International Airport land and is therefore, technically not part of the city of Richmond). It contains a primary sewage treatment plant, park, and a refuge for migratory birds and other wildlife.
