Spring visitor – Spotted Sandpiper

For the fourth year we have deployed floating platforms in Silver Lake with motion activated cameras installed to capture videos of visitors. We have had many surprises including this year with visits from Spotted Sandpipers.

The Spotted Sandpiper is common to the shores of streams, ponds and lakes in NE Pennsylvania and New York. This individual is an adult in breeding plumage with the orange bill and sotted chest.

Check our Youtube channel for some recent video clips from the floating platforms.
