Spotted Sandpiper

Photo of the Week (June 11th, 2017)

(archive photos of the week here)

It's early June, the migrants have all pushed through, and for the next few months we'll be enjoying our summer residents. Shorebirds are a great deal of fun in migration, but we don't have many at all that hang around for the summer. One of the few that does are Spotted Sandpipers.  They seem pretty adaptable, as I've found them in all kinds of aquatic habitats. Here, a pair had decided to set up shop for the summer along a flooded ditch in Lincoln County.
