I believe this to be the Common Sandpiper. This bird is VERY rare in North America, because it's a Eurasian species. It MIGHT be the immature Spotted Sandpiper - Corrections welcome!

But in either event, this bird is ELEGANT.

Nice shots dave. Can't help you with the ID. Don't get many sea birds here in central PA.

Very nice shots of a good looking bird Dave. And Like Woodmeister I can't help with the ID either. Sorry

None of these smaller sandpipers are ugly. this one is about the size of a Robin, maybe a bit larger. But he has a grace that stands out!

I've seen adult Spotted Sandpipers, and have some good shots of them - but if it IS a "Common Sandpiper," it's a fairly rare find indeed! They are not North American birds...

Anyway, I've decided it is - so there!:?:
