Friends, this is a very small bird and pushing the limits of my telephoto lens, but couldn’t resist sharing his wing stretch with all of you. I think he is a semi-palmated Sandpiper, but the experts out there will probably help with his id. Semi-palmated meaning his feet are slightly webbed, but as you can see that part of his anatomy is not accessible. Black legs and feet so is probably more sandpiper than plover. The image below shows his beautiful back feathers. til Tomorrow MJ
