Least Sandpiper

Least Sandpipers are very common migrants over most of the United States. The species breeds from Alaska across northern Canada. Most winter in northeastern South America. They are recognized by their small size, brown plumage, and yellowish legs (which can pass unnoticed if they are muddy). Erika and I photographed this bird on 15 April 2019 at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge near Olympia, Washington.
