A common migrant at Granger Lake when the lake level is low enough to expose mudflats.

There's been a Pectoral Sandpiper at Travis for the last few days.
Almost impossible to get close to.
It's the 3rd time in the last 10 years that one has been seen there.
Thanks go to Andrew Crossland for finding it.
The Pectoral Sandpiper (Calidris melanotos) is a small, migratory wader that breeds in North America and Asia, wintering in South America and Oceania. It eats small invertebrates. Its nest, a hole scraped in the ground and with a thick lining, is deep enough to protect its four eggs from the cool breezes of its breeding grounds. The pectoral sandpiper is 21 cm long, with a wingspan of 46 cm.
