Bird of the Week … Who am I???

My friends and I are on Seabrook Island’s North Beach in growing numbers from late winter to spring. By May there will be many thousands of us visiting you! We’re a plain grey color now, but soon will be turning a spectacular rufous color. We feed in large flocks along Seabrook Island’s shore on the falling tide. We don’t like to be disturbed by people, or chased by dogs, while we’re feeding and resting. We’re on an incredibly long journey, so please help us on this very important stop to your island. ¬†Who am I?

Leave us a comment if you want to make a guess – and watch for the full article on Sunday morning!
