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.

Awkward.

It’s awkward scratching around your eye when your toes are like that.
