Bird Pic Of The Week

Short-billed Dowitcher

(Limnodromus griseus)

Where: Slaughter Beach, DE • Mispillion Nature Reserve

Notes: This was one of the last photos I captured on a trip to the Delaware Bay this past spring. Before we packed the cars to return home, my friend Paul and I took a quick run to the ditches at the reserve down the street for one last look. The tide was high, so most of the birds we saw were up on perches. The morning light and smooth even background make this image one of my all time favorites from that trip. This mid-sized member of the sandpiper family was distinguished from the similar Long-billed Dowitcher by is call. Dowitchers are often seen feeding at low tide along the edges of the newly exposed mud flats. They resemble a sewing machine as their heads repeatedly oscillate up and down as they probe for crustaceans.
