We have a new home in Presque Isle (lower peninsula) and are there part time. Enjoying the lovely harbor this morning, I spotted a Solitary Sandpiper flitting over the water, up and down and to the shore and back for about 5 minutes. It even landed about 5 feet away from me for about 15 seconds. When it continued its flight pattern, I went in to get my camera. When I returned, it was no longer in sight, but it was my first Solitary Sandpiper and I will keep a picture in my memory. The area, although on the southern edge of the harbor, is also on the northern edge of a fen and not too far from a stream and a pond - so it had lots of habitats to explore.
