Spotted Sandpiper

 Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.

Sandpipers can be so difficult, esp. in different seasonal plumage, but this one looks like the Spotted to me, by the photo on AllAboutBirds.org!

Lovely photo, and I agree with Jayne, looks like a spotted sandpiper also

No doubt about it. This is a spotted sandpiper. They are just beginning to move south in migration after breeding to the north of us.muz

Great find--the spotted sandpiper. I saw one for the first time in the Bahamas but they come through here about this time.
