Sanderlings, Sandpipers, Peeps…a confusing lot of similarly sized and colored shore birds according to Cornell’s All About Birds. They are fun to watch as they zip along the water’s edge poking the sand for food.
This peep was on his own. He had a buddy when I first spotted him but he flew up the beach.
They are easy to overlook because of their small size and their brown feathers blend them into the sand
The reflection of the sun in the wet sand made a nice color backdrop when he went closer to the water.
