Sanderlings in San Diego

I’m happy to share a guest post today from Seize the Day RV Adventure.

Sanderlings in San Diego

We love to travel in our own RV when on vacation, and I enjoy following the adventures of others that either travel part-time or live full-time in their RVs, too.  RV travelers often spend quite a bit of time in natural settings and some are also avid bird and animal watchers.  I loved this recent post at Seize the Day RV Adventure and asked their permission to share it here.  I hope you enjoy this special bird and their great photos!

Sanderlings are in the Sandpiper family, and are sometimes referred to as “peep” sandpipers.  Many of us have probably seen them scurrying around on beaches we’ve visited in fall, winter and spring months, too.  What impressed me when researching these birds is just how far they migrate each year!  Click on the link below at All About Birds to see a map of just how far they travel.  I have a new appreciation of these tiny little travelers now, for sure.

“These extreme long-distance migrants breed only on High Arctic tundra, but during the winter they live on most of the sandy beaches of the world.” — The Cornell Lab of Ornithology – www.allaboutbirds.org

I hope you will click through to Seize The Day RV Adventure’s post and share a like and a comment there.  I wish I was strolling with those cute Sanderlings on the beach today!

(And my apologies to them for not being able to reblog it here, as I reblogged it on my main site first, not knowing that I am only allowed to reblog their post once.)
