I’m sharing a simple Semipalmated Sandpiper image today that I photographed at Fort De Soto’s north beach back in May of 2009. I didn’t see Semipalmated Sandpipers often there and only when they were migrating because they winter further south than where I lived in Florida and they breed in the lower Arctic regions from western Alaska to Labrador.
The word “semipalmated” refers to their half webbed toes that help them walk on mudflats.
It dawned on me while going through images to put into my new galleries that I had never posted a Semipalmated Sandpiper image here on my blog. I think they are cute little shorebirds.
Life is good.
