'a screamer!', hiding in the woods.


  1. Very nice photo. I thought Sandpipers only stayed where the weather is warm. So, I suppose I was wrong, if you took that in December. I love watching them running back and forth here in the surf. :-)

  2. Thanks Tootie, indeed no Sandpipers now, this photo was taken June 21. I'll will visit your blog hoping to see that surf! As it is -40 C here now, no sandpipers , no sand , no surf, only pipers piping(christmas music).
