Description

A few Sanderling, Calidris alba, were feeding along the shore when I visited University Beach, Corpus Christi, Texas, today.

A series of fast photos (about 18 photos in 9 seconds) shows how fast it can move.

I observed a little Sanderling, Calidris alba, at University Beach, Corpus Christi Bay, Texas.

It is a common species locally and I often observe it walking fast, always busy searching for food.

Description from Wikipedia

The calidrids or typical waders are a group of Arctic-breeding, strongly migratory wading birds. These birds form huge mixed flocks on coasts and estuaries in winter. They are the typical "sandpipers", small to medium-sized, long-winged and relatively short-billed.

No range data available.
