The Common Sandpiper is a fun bird to photograph.
Why?
Because the bird is not so shy and it likes to scream all the time.
I took these photos as I was walking along the coastline in the archipelago.

Bird facts:
  • The adult is 18–20 cm (7.1–7.9 in) long with a 32–35 cm (13–14 in) wingspan.
  • Bird type: Palearctic wader.
  • The common sandpiper forages by sight on the ground or in shallow water, picking up small food items such as insects, crustaceans and other invertebrates.
  • It nests on the ground near freshwater. When threatened, the young may cling to their parent's body to be flown away to safety.
