Spotted Sandpiper

The Spotted Sandpiper is a shore bird, but I met this one in a swamp in a section of old abandoned Champlain Canal in Fort Edward NY., hunting for small fish, tadpoles and bugs.   high-res

This Spotted Sandpiper (left) appears to have mated with a Solitary Sandpiper (right). They were moving around the swamp together, hunting together, and when startled they both flew to the same perches together.   high-res

The Spotted Sandpiper, a cute little shore bird.
