Fall migration is now in full swing in the birding world! One of the many migrating shorebirds seen in Falmouth is the Least Sandpiper. This sandpiper tends to like mudflats and is usually found in small flocks. They may appear nervous when foraging for food and frequently burst into flight only to land quickly nearby. This juvenile Least Sandpiper, seen at Black Beach in West Falmouth, has mottled brown upperparts, a faintly streaked breast, white eyebrow and chin, black bill, and green legs.
