Semipalmated Sandpipers

You don’t normally think of finding Semipalmated Sandpipers on a jetty so I was a bit surprised to find these loitering on the Derby Wharf in Salem, Massachusetts.Semipalmated Sandpiper 9-26-2008 10-31-41 AM

Lovely images Steve, love the water reflection in the small puddle on image one, while the third image shows the detailed plumage. A great species of shore bird.

HI steve I have never sen this lovely little bird. Itlooks like our Sanderling a bit but your photos of them are great.

Marvelous photos! I've always imagined these birds to be skittering along the tide line rather than loitering. Great to have a closer look!

Beautiful little birds and great photos. I especially like the reflections you caught in the first photo. This is another bird I would like to see but it very seldom comes down this way.
