PIC OF THE WEEK: 10/20/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2014 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Willet

(Tringa semipalmata)

Where: Pinellas County, FL • Fort De Soto Park

Notes: The under-wings of the Willet are mostly black with a bold white stripe (right). That contrast makes this large sandpiper easy to identify in flight. But these birds need their rest too, especially after hours spent foraging for food, averting danger, socializing and taking care of its feathers by preening. I like the peaceful mood of this image, with its the soft foreground and background. The detail of the bird’s feathers and the sprinkling of tiny seashells on the beach complete the scene. In winter, Willets forage for food on beaches, mudflats and marshes. This large shorebird winters on almost every U.S. mainland coastline, plus the northern half of South America’s coast, and nearly all islands in-between. The population is segmented into two regions, eastern and western. The western population breeds far inland to nest in the northern grasslands and prairies. Eastern Willets typically breed in northeastern coastal saltmarshes and on barrier beach islands. They are closely related to Yellowlegs (SEE: PIC OF THE WEEK 12/02/13) another of the large sandpiper species.
