It’s the Least I can say about Baja Birds.

 

The Least Sandpiper.  These are the smallest of American shore birds or “peeps“.  Brownish above with yellow or green legs and short thin bills.  They greet us with a treep and a chuckle when we visit the estuary.

 

 

Least Sandpipers are found in mud-flats, marshes and estuaries much more so than any kind of open ocean beach habitat.

They feed on insects, crustaceans, mollusks and marine worms.

Least Sandpiper

Least Sandpipers breed from Alaska east across Canada to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.  They spend the winters along the south coasts.  Hard to imagine these little birds migrating such a distance. 6″
