In fact, I have seen more Western Sandpipers this season than I have seen White-rumped Sandpipers. To quote my naturalist friend Rich kelly, "What's up with that"? Here are a few that were not too hard to pick out. I have photos of a few that were just soooo tough, but I will leave them for another post. Oh and look out for those big billed Semipalmated Sandpipers, there are plenty of them around at the moment and they try their very best into tricking you into thinking Western.
