Monday Again?

Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius). Shorebirds are already on the move, heading south from their breeding grounds.

I saw at least two of these in Green-Wood yesterday. Like the Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria), this species is often seen away from the ocean shore, along freshwater shores.

In its non-breeding plumage, as now, the Spotted lacks the rich spotting on the breast that gives it its common name.

I was outside quite a bit over the weekend. Sunday’s mildness was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity that makes being outdoors trying to focus on tiny bugs sweaty work. My cameras are full of nature to share with you. So look out….
