Bellevue Beach, the beach that keeps on giving, remedied that last week. Among a group of "peeps," this little Least Sandpiper really stood out.
With changing light and the clusters of "peeps" scurrying around, it is not always easy to pick out the Least. For me the first checkpoint was the color of the legs. That is helpful, of course, if you are up close. From a distance the best marker is its brown scaled upperparts.
