2017—What’s With The Semipalmates?

Here’s another bird that’s semipalmated.  When I first reviewed the images of this bird, I thought it was a sanderling in breeding plumage.  As it turns out, this bird is actually a Semipalmated Sandpiper with, you guessed it, incomplete webbed feet.  Sanderlings are in the sandpiper family but, Sanderlings don’t get their breeding plumage until May.

  1. Carol this new method of getting down low in the sand that you are using for shooting shore birds is awesome. Thanks for the great presentation on this method at the Placer Camera Club last night and keep you and your gear dry.
