Still at Bullhead Bay when I stumbled across this little guy. As near as I can tell, he’s a Spotted Sandpiper, although this time of year makes IDs harder, since mating season is long over and some species are already into their molt. My limited experience with shore birds doesn’t help; although they’re fairly common to the area during migrations, or after large storms pass through, I rarely come across them. Mostly a case of my shooting locations and their landing points not overlapping. So it was pretty exciting to come home with a capture of this guy, especially since I was working with the 70-200L at the time. 200mm is woefully short for wildlife shooting, and the shot is heavily cropped. But it’s still a shot that counts!
