Below: A large flock of Red Knots on Assateague Island, Maryland (9/18/2011). This flock consisted of 62 birds, overwhelmingly juveniles. The total for the northern part of the ORV/OSV zone was 77 birds, a very high count for Maryland in fall. Note the molting adult bird that still retains old coverts and a bit of red plumage on its belly.
