My first trip of the year to Occoquan, Va., began without incident. It was New Year’s Day and things were pretty quiet, except on the dock pilings along the river where things were beginning to get interesting. (please see more photos and text below)
Please be sure to check out my recent post on frozen water falls Deep Creek on Ice Part II .
There are dozens of these pilings in Occoquan apparently not enough though to give all of the shorebirds a place to land. I had never witnessed this bird version of musical chairs until last week.
Each bird would perch for a long as it could before being unseated by a another bird. It was a dance of sorts that made for some interesting action shots.
Thanks for dropping by my blog today, Rob
