Realy angry Sanderling

Done at Presqui'lle Provincial Park

The Sanderling (Calidris alba, syn. Crocethia alba[1] or Erolia alba) is a small wader. It is a circumpolar Arctic breeder, and is a long-distance migrant, wintering south to South America, South Europe, Africa, and Australia. It is highly gregarious in winter, sometimes forming large flocks on coastal mudflats or sandy beaches.

The Sanderling is a small plump sandpiper, 1820 cm in length. Its weight ranges from 40-100 g. The winter bird is very pale, almost white apart from a dark shoulder patch. This is the source of the specific name, alba, which is the Latin for "white". Later in the summer, the face and throat become brick-red.

Hello Mario,

Wonderful animated composition of this beautiful Sandpiper. The light is A-1 bringing out the purest of hues & the impressive focus is razor sharp. Perfect!
