Interested in College in Alaska?

Western Sandpiper
Calidris mauri

All I had to do was wait paitiently without making any sudden movements and these birds seemed comfortable getting pretty close. This bird was probably only 5 or 6 feet from me when I took this picture.

Location: Fish Bay Tidal Flats, Baranof Island, Alaska
