Least Sandpiper

I don't often see these guys in the Spring possibly because I don't  go to the areas where they're most likely found. We don't get large numbers of shorebirds passing through until the "Fall" migration which for these birds begins around the first of July. There are only a handful of shorebirds that breed here including the ubiquitous Willet and the rare Piping Plover. Least Sandpipers are not on that list so this lone bird was likely headed to their breeding grounds much north of here. May 22, East Jordan.
