Bird Pic Of The Week

Willet

(Catoptrophorus semipalmatus)

Where: Port Mahon, DE • Port Mahon Road

Notes: My partner and I sat an watched in wonder at this speckled spring male Willet as it rotated its wings in a courtship display, in hopes of impressing a nearby female. When the flapping stopped he would pose it an upright stance and strut about back and forth. It had been years since I had seen this large sandpiper in its breeding plumage. The contrast of its dark checkerboard stripes and sandy background give it an affective style of camouflage in the open grassy savannahs where it usually nests.
