Tag. You’re it!

Sandpipers are a lot of fun to watch.  They are fast runners, darting around on their little legs then taking to the air looping in tight circles to defend their territory.  Sandpipers are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors and their populations are widespread.   They are shorebirds but also found inland along marshes and ponds.  These two Western Sandpipers were engaged in a game of tag at Cutler Wetlands.
