Bird #53 — Solitary Sandpiper

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

Sunday, September 2, 1979 — 10:00 am

Oneida County, Wisconsin — Rainbow Flowage

My fiancee and I went to the flowage beach-comb and bird.  The water level was low, and a lot of sand and mudflats were exposed back in the bays. A few Solitary Sandpipers 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.
