Sanderling

ABA 1

(Calidris alba)

Sanderling is a small active shore Sandpiper, often seen in groups on the beach at the waters edge running in and out of the surf.  An unusual distinguishing feature is the absence of a rear toe on the foot.  Sanderlings often keep company with Dunlins and Semipalmated Plovers.
