I found this bird on a log at the local pond across the street and can't figure out what it is. It is fairly small, about half the size of a blackbird and I have never seen one around here before.



Crop!

I'm not sure, but it looks like some kind of 'Sandpiper'.

There are many species of sandpiper, and I don't see enough of them to feel real confident, but I would guess a Least Sandpiper. Very nice detail on the shot.

Thanks, I thought it was a Sandpiper, but I can't figure out what kind in my bird book, they all seem to look alike.

It would be a Solitary Sandpiper. Couldn't ask for a better picture.

Solitary! He didn't ask how many, he want to know what kind!
