PIC OF THE WEEK: 11/02/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Door County, WI • Chambers Island
Notes: When life slows down long enough to peek back at some of the unprocessed images still lingering in folders on my hard drive from past excursions, it is a refreshing surprise to find photos like this one. It was captured near the southern tip on an island in Green Bay just over a year ago. Anytime an image can show the uniqueness of an individual species, it makes it special in my opinion. In this case the wing stretch of this little member of the sandpiper family reveals its white rump patch. This mark distinguishes it from the other three small sandpiper species, loving know as “peeps”, that it closely resembles. But that notable identification mark is not often exposed. Its wingtips also extend well beyond the end of its tail. These small six inch birds breed in the tundra region north of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic and migrate all the way to the southern tip of Chili and southeastern South America. This is an extremely long migration of over eight thousand miles! Very amazing for such a small bird.
