18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Willet Duel Two

Willets dueling for a tasty morsel at the Assateague National Seashore in Chincoteague VA. We watched a group of roughly 15 Willet as they searched for food along the shoreline, seemingly unfazed by the presence of humans. These two Willet frequently clashed over position on the shoreline.
