I meant to go there today, but ended up going somewhere else...Nice shot!

These birds were on the northern shore of Saltons Cove (spelled Sattlings Cove on the NTS map). In addition to shorebirds, the summer months also bring common terns, osprey, eagles, and other winged critters to this area.  It's probably one of the most ecological important areas in the Goose Bay part of Bonavista Bay.
