Shorebirds

Small, still bodies of water and ponds that are speckled abundantly throughout the prairies provide the perfect environment for all sorts of shorebirds. Sandpipers, Stilts, Plovers, Dowitchers, Snipes – the list goes one. A unique and beautiful shorebird called the Wilson Snipe is often perched on fence posts in the summers. He will stand silently on one leg, adopting the ‘don’t move and I won’t be seen’ method of defence.
