Peet-weet

Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularia), Bodega Head, 14 October 2013


On 28 July 2012, I posted a picture of a Spotted Sandpiper in breeding plumage (with spots).  These are my first images of this species in non-breeding plumage (without spots) on Bodega Head. 



In the next image, I liked the size comparison between the Spotted Sandpiper and Least Sandpiper...as well as their accompanying shadows on the sand.


P.S.  Peet-weet is an older nickname for Spotted Sandpiper based on their call.
