Five Maine Sandpipers
Photograph - Photographs
While visiting a dear friend in Wells, we took some time to walk along her beach. It was magnificent, even though it was a cold January day. These lovely sandpipers were harvesting some tasty morsels coming up in the tide. They did not seem afraid of me at all and let me get within a couple of feet of them to take this photo. Sandpipers are the cutest birds along the beach. I love their long legs and delicate beaks! Sandpipers are a large family, Scolopacidae, of waders or shorebirds. They include many species called sandpipers, as well as those called by names such as curlew and snipe. The majority of these species eat small invertebrates picked out of the mud or soil. Aren't they just adorable?
