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