Bird #54 — Solitary Sandpiper

tringa (a white-rumped water bird) solitaria (solitary)

Sunday, September 2, 1979 — 10:00 am

Oneida County, Wisconsin — Rainbow Flowage

We went over to the flowage after breakfast to beach-comb and bird.  The water level was low, and a lot of sand and mudflats were exposed back in the bays.  Larry and Cindy walked ahead and were out of sight when Sally and I saw the Solitary Sandpipers.

The birds were foraging in a loose flock on mud flats and in shallow water in a small bay.  Occasionally, one would make a short flight to another spot.
