Spotted Sandpiper

May 12th, 2011

A Spotted Sandpiper stopped in at the Museum on Saturday (4/7/11).

A Spotted Sandpiper stops by the Wetlands to feed and rest on its northward migration.

We don’t often see shorebirds at the Museum, so whenever one does show up it’s worth mentioning. Spotted Sandpipers are one of four species I would expect to see here. The other three shorebirds likely to be seen are Solitary Sandpiper, Killdeer, and Least Sandpiper. All but the latter have been seen.

I’m waiting patiently for the Least Sandpipers to arrive!
