The Upland Sandpiper (Bartramia longicauda) differs pretty significantly from most other sandpipers. For one, it doesn't much like wetlands. This is a lover of prairies, and its long legs and E.T.-like stretchable neck attest to that! So much does it favor grasslands that nearly three-quarters of its population breeds in the midwest, though population peninsulas and islands can be found as far east as Quebec and as far west as Alaska. There was, indeed, a breeding pair in a local park here not ten minutes from my home!
These are loose colony nesters, where their numbers support the practice. Let's hope that their numbers rebound from the overhunting of the 1800s and the habitat loss of the 1900s, so that many a colony of these goofy and lovable sandpipers takes root.

Собственно, этим видео я признаюсь, что медведь 🐻 наступил на ухо мне, а не Тимоше 😁

Bird t shirts from “P&L Originals” on Amazon. Here’s a sampling! I don’t buy Amazon sponsorships-which means our t shirts designs don’t pop up everywhere when you open up the Amazon site! Which I personally find annoying 🤨. Just a one artist operation - hope you like some of my work ❤️😃
