Flight Of Birds

    The flight of birds has been the object of man's study since prehistoric times, and the subject of emulation, admiration, and envy. Here I present some images of the flight of some of the birds in my neighborhood in Northern California and a few elsewhere.

The Sandpiper Series    Click on thumbnail number 1 below. To best appreciate the entire series, click the "next" button at the bottom of each image; this will advance the images in a slide show sequence and you won't have to return to this page each time. You can return to this page at any time by clicking the "Back to flight home page" label. The panoramic images are wider than most screens; you will need to scroll to the right to see the entire image.  Click this link to see some sandpipers on the shore.
