Broad-billed Sandpipers on migration

Last Saturday I was out in a wetland looking for Broad-billed Sandpipers on their way to northern Scandinavia. After several hours I was able to locate them hiding in the wettest areas with stray grass, much like their breeding habitat in Finland where I visited them last spring. After 15-20 mins, the birds accepted my presence and started to feed in front of me, lying in the wetland with waders on. The key to this series definitely was patience, if I would have progressed too fast the birds probably would have flushed, instead I got what is probably my best series of the species.

On Sunday I’m off to Alaska for almost three weeks. Stay tuned for more images!
