While fishing the Meadow Grounds Lake Saturday morning I spotted a couple of sandpipers feeding along the shoreline. Cautiously approaching with the boat I was able to move to within about twenty feet of this bird as it tipped and bobbed along looking for food.
The shoreline of this lake is surrounded by thick vegetation seldom allowing a photograph of any shorebirds however the water was recently lowered to facilitate dam inspection and possible repairs. With a few yards of shoreline now exposed I am looking forward to more photographs such as this as the autumn progresses.
Apparently spotting a tasty morsel the little sandpiper struck an interesting pose for this image.
