I was recently reminded of this photograph that I took several seasons ago at the Nickerson Beach, Long Island, New York. It is still one of my favorite images from this amazing place.

Recently, I updated my guide to photographing nesting birds at the Nickerson Beach. You can see the latest update, showing the outgoing construction there, by following this link: https://www.greggard.com/blog/nesting-shorebirds-nickerson-beach-long-island-ny-photography-guide
