Recently I posted about a morning I spent birding at Conejohela Flats in Lancaster County, which mentioned that I saw and photographed an adult Stilt Sandpiper. That morning I was incredibly lucky because the bird actually flew over and landed where I was already set up and taking pictures of some Black Terns. Lighting conditions were really in my favor and I was able to take a ton of photos of the sandpiper as it foraged and preened itself. Below are some of my favorite shots. Of all the shorebirds I have seen, Stilt Sandpipers are certainly one of my favorites.
