Dunlin Feeding Sequence

Since this is been a harsh winter with a large amount the snow, even though I have snow shoes.  I have not been exploring is much as I am still getting my back into shape.  Normally the winter, with less snow.  I will travel out to Gooseberry because the peeps are usually feeding on the incoming or outgoing tides.

Here is a sequence of photographs showing a dunlin feeding on the mollusk inside a slipper shell.  I think it's interesting the way the dunlin beats the mollusk against the water to soften it and break it up into smaller pieces so it can be eaten.
