Purple Sandpipers

These little guys are as tough as nails. The come down from north of the Hudson Bay to winter down here on Cape Ann. You will find them on the rocky shorelines and on Dogbar Breakwater.

Such pretty little things! I wonder how the small birds manage in the bitter temperatures of winter...

Lovely shots Steve, specially the one on the grey granite! I have to travel down to Portland on the south coast to see these. (1 1/2 hours away).

FAB shots of this delightful Sandpiper. It's been well over a year since I've seen one!

Great photos of the Sandpiper. I love all shorebirds but that is not one that migrates down this way.

Karen said...

Terrific crisp shots of this cutie!

There are great looking birds - I think most waders are tougher than their size would suggest.

Like the water in the first birds bill.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Hi Steve! Haven't been to see you in a long time, which I'm remedying today! LOVE your shorebird images. This little guy is so cute! Just saying Hello...!

Amanda said...

Fantastic shots! Definitely agree with previous comments - what a cutie and what's not to love about a shorebird.

We only get to see these guys during migration and even then only rarely.
Wonderful images!
