Solitary Sandpiper


This is only the third time I have seen a Solitary Sandpiper in the last decade, and it has always been seen in August.

The Solitary Sandpiper does not appear to breed around Kootenay Lake, but does breed farther north. So, when seen around the Lake, it is just stopping to feed during migration.

A Solitary Sandpiper forages in the Harrop wetlands during its migration south.
