Hello friends, I must be at the level
of the bird, but the Solitary Sandpiper
is also among the fearful birds I have seen,
here I did not want to loose my time,
from where I was and the way standing
I was I shot the photo, then the bird
it fly-up, it is the only photo I did.

1/1000s f/5.6 ISO400 66.7mm (35mm eq:300mm)
photo shot in RAW and 50% of cropping from the
original image. From my spring 2008 archives.

from the All About Birds website

The Solitary Sandpiper is commonly seen in
migration along the banks of ponds and creeks.
While not truly solitary, it does not migrate
in large flocks the way other shorebirds do.

Breeds in taiga, nesting in trees in
deserted songbird nests. In migration
and winter found along freshwater ponds,
stream edges, temporary pools, flooded ditches
and fields, more commonly in wooded regions,
less frequently on mudflats and open marshes.

nice view of the sandpiper from a distance.
The swampy environment is well shown to accompany the habitat.
