Bird Pic Of The Week

Willet

(Tringa semipalmata)

Where:Pinellas County, FL • Fort De Soto Park

Notes: There is something so serene about a sandpiper, like this Willet, taking an afternoon siesta on the beach. A certain feeling of security must accompany such behavior. After a long morning of searching for crustaceans and tidbits of food at the water’s edge, this bird found comfort in the warm rays of the midday sun along the sandy Gulf shore. Several other shorebirds joined in the napping activity, or inactivity as the case may be. Taking refuge in an open area like this is made possible by the surrounding birds. Some shorebirds rest while others act as watchgards. If warranted, an alarm call would be sounded to alert the rest of the group. There is safety in numbers. The occasional peek from this bird’s eye, let me know it remained aware of its surroundings, despite its relaxed appearance.
