Spotted Sandpiper

On 3 August I checked out North Point, a peninsula lying north of downtown Olympia. eBird reported someone’s seeing Sanderlings there. No Sanderlings, but I did add this Spotted Sandpiper to my ever-growing Thurston County year bird-list. They are fairly easy to identify. They bob their back ends up and down and fly with jerky wingbeats. No spots, however, in the winter.
