CFFC: Red Knot

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to have the Letter “K” anywhere in the word.

I started thinking about some of the birds and mammals that have the letter K in their common English names. One of the first species that came to mind was Red Knot, possibly because in Britain the common English name is simply Knot.

Having spent some time with two juvenile Red Knot on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario when they had stopped off on autumn migration I decided to go with a selection of photos showing various activities.

These young birds had hatched from eggs a few months previously and had already traveled a considerable distance from the Canadian arctic. Some Red Knot fly to coastal South America for the winter.

Thanks Becky. I didn’t realise how many photos of the various activities I had taken until I started going through my slide files and digitizing them.

I’m sitting at the desktop importing and keywording another 100 or so slides. From Snow Geese in flight in one slide sheet to assorted British spiders in another sheet. Each sheet can hold 24 slides so I copy 4or 5 sheets before importing and keywording.

I’m a big coffee drinker but by mid morning I have to take a break from coffee until late afternoon when I’ll have another half a pot.

Thanks Cee. I suppose most none birders would have thought the same. Something red tied in a knot would be a distant second choice for a lot of birders.
