Common Sandpiper

The sandpipers are seen usually near the water’s edge on beaches and tidal mud flats.  Sandpipers are ground feeders that dine on crustaceans, insects, worms, and other coastal creatures.


These birds are super fast runners. They have this keen eye for watching for waves even while eating.  All I observed was, even while busy searching for their feast they never wet their feet. The either run really fast away from the waves or fly. Simply admired their concentration and search for food.
