Sharp-tailed Sandpiper

Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (Image ID 44630)
CommentI picked this image due to the action of the main bird. I am not sure if it is a “display” to attract a female or an aggressive stance. It did go on for a good 10 minutes. With the main bird following the others around leading me to feel it as more of a display posture as the other two did not seem overly concerned one way or the other.
