Ken Mudge says:

I am writing a book about the natural history of Florida Gulf Coast barrier islands, including shore birds, including sanderlings. Your photo showing a sanderling with a sand crab in its beak is an excellent example of one of the birds major food source. May I use the photo, crediting you, in my book. Is there a Feeder Watch policy on use of photos? Thanks.
