Least Sandpipers

Another of the migratory birds making their way south. The Least Sandpiper is the smallest
of the shorebirds, the photos make them appear larger than the 4-4½ inches that they are.
Females leave the north first, and they can be seen here as early as July, with males
and young coming through in late August and September. These I caught at Willingdon last year.

  1. We saw what I think was a Spotted Sandpiper already in winter plumage at the cabin. - Margy
