Subject: [obol] sandpiper thoughts
This lone sandpiper was at Ona Beach a few days ago foraging at the mouth
of Beaver Creek. It was small, Least Sandpiper-sized at a glance but it
caught my eye as seeming different, more upright and long-legged. A few
Westerns were in the area but not with it. Took lots of pictures and its
toes struck me as especially long. Maybe I just don't look at shorebirds
enough but I sure would be interested in any thoughts y'all might have.
Three photos and a video are at:
