Western Sandpipers

Given all the sad news and images out of the Gulf lately, particularly of oil-covered fauna like birds, I thought I'd highlight this reader-submitted photo of two happy and healthy Western sandpipers - as a reminder that there are still some things right with the world.

This photograph is from Flickr member SigmaEye, a regular contributor of beautiful images to our Flickr pool. Submit your photos to our pool too! We feature them regularly on the Range blog.
