Least Sandpiper

May 31, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Least Sandpiper is a denizen of the coastline often foraging among the kelp and weeds captured by the rocks. The pickings are always best after a high tide when the little edibles are marooned.

The Least Sandpiper is the tamest of all the sandpipers in my experience. I've sat on a beach chair or on a shoreline rock and the little critters have marched to within a metre of me as they forage. Other shorebirds can be almost as accommodating as long as you don't move. Once you have your camera at your viewing position, in my case eyepiece viewing, don't remove the camera from your eye and slowly follow the bird around.
