White-rumped Sandpipers - June 3, 2011

White-rumped Sandpipers at Grove City, Mercer County, PA
 
Three White-rumped Sandpipers in a flooded field in southern Mercer County proved to be very photogenic in early June, feeding sometimes within feet of the shoulder of Tieline Road. I came away with a set of 27 pictures which are without a doubt my best of this species, and of birds in breeding plumage at that.
