Pectoral Sandpiper Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: One of the more common shorebirds that migrates through the state, and thankfully, one that's easy to identify compared to some of the other sandpipers! The photo below is of a Pectoral Sandpiper foraging on the edge of a flooded corn field, taken on May 6th, 2017 in Lincoln County, South Dakota.
