[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Done on the shore of Lake Ontario - Mississauga
This bird is probably common for many, but I saw it for the first time. I found it strange to see a typical ocean shore bird inland, even during migration.

Sanderling
Calidris alba Order CHARADRIIFORMES - Family SCOLOPACIDAE

The Sanderling is most commonly seen in flocks chasing receding waves on ocean beaches, and running away from them when they return. It breeds in the high Arctic and winters along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts from Canada to Argentina.
