Upland Sandpiper

November 08, 2023

The Upland Sandpiper is near to an annual regular, albeit in small numbers. It is still considered rare and certainly hard to find.

Laura and I first met this friendly species in Manitoba where often as not it would sit on a post and signal its pleasure with a wolf whistle song. We came to call it "button eyes" due to its piercing glare. Like the Manitoba Upland Sandpiper the Halifax visitor was friendly and not easily startled although like most birds if you get too close you will end up photographing its backside.
