Sanderlings poke and prod the sand as they work up and down the beach, eating little creepy-crawlies they feel with their beaks.
This one was intrigued by a dead crab. Could it be a treasure?
Not so sure, he tried the other side. He gave the crab a couple of pokes and moved on. This treasure was trash for this bird.

Love the curiosity you captured in the two photos, the first one is beautiful with the wet sand, rocks and shells. Great series, Ellen!
Thanks, Donna! I love the shore birds and this was the first time we’d been to a beach in ages to see some. Actually we went for sunset which was a bust but these were a real bonus.
