Migrating Red Knots over Pennsylvania (piedmont)

Observation details

At least 100, but only 91 shown in this image as I could not grab the entire flock with the lens. Other images show what are probably REKN, too. Long wings, deeper chest, and medium length bill support this species. Further post-processing of the image by LD showed plumage contrasts expected with REKN also. Pointed out by MH at 18:05
