Marching Together is an image of three different shorebirds, a Ruddy Turnstone, a Sanderling, and a Semi-palmated Plover, moving forward, sharing the beach, seeking food and foraging together.  I reflect in this, a hope of humankind coming together in spite of differences, recognizing our commonality, our common needs, our common dreams.  The casual observer enjoys the pleasure of seeing three delightful white and brown birds skittering in the sand.  Closer inspection reveals a unique and varied plumage with harlequin pattern on the Turnstone,  the little Sanderling in front that travels up to 6000 miles every year from high arctic breeding  grounds to as far as South America for the winter, and the Plover that loves to run in the sand with tail up and displaying its black neckband.  Each species is unique and beautiful with their own characteristics.  Together they march across the sand connected in unity in their shared purpose and facing similar challenges.
