Walk this Way
This beautiful Pacific coast beach scene is a reminder of the calming influence of watching Western sandpipers play tag with frothy waves, as well as nature in general.
In summer, Western sandpipers congregate on breeding grounds in Alaska and eastern Siberia. As the weather cools, they migrate southeast to wintering areas on both coasts of North and South America. They apparently travel between these habitats in a series of short flights, and not the long overwater journeys of their shorebird kin.
