Name that Peep

A nice morning walk around the reservoir at Pine Run this morning.

Not a huge amount of shorebird diversity (see list at end), and didn't get any great digiscope shots. For example, name that peep!

Best birds were two lingering Stilt Sandpipers. Mostly it was just fun to be out and walk in the mud. Brings back memories of shorebirding on the coast of Oregon as a kid before I had a scope and I had to wade out into the estuaries to see my first Semipalmated Sandpiper. Here's where I had to turn around this morning because I sank up to my knees in mud. Fun.

It's always fun to go tromping through some mudflats in search of sandpipers! Lose any boots? Thanks for sharing!
