Caption: Not too much longer before the sandpipers dress up in their fancy plumage and fly to the high arctic to breed. Western sandpipers (left) go to the north coast of Alaska; dunlin (right) breed in the Arctic ocean islands north of Nunavut in Canada.

About Tsurai

Tsurai

I'm fortunate enough to live 'way up on the northwestern coast of northern California, an area sometimes referred to as The Humboldt Nation, or the land behind the redwood curtain. Work takes me on the road six months a year, but the rest of the time is mine to surf, kayak, fish, watch birds, and of course take photographs of this remarkable region.
