Bar-tailed Godwits come from New Zealand, Pacific Golden Plovers, Wandering Tattlers, Ruddy Turnstones and other birds come from Hawaii, and Northern Wheatears come all the way from Africa. Then there are the rare birds that cross the Baring and Chukchi Seas, such as Bluethroat and Easter Yellow Wagtail. Toss is a varied selection of ducks, loons, terns, shorebirds and other songbirds and all of a sudden it just becomes a bird photographers paradise.
