Nothing like a nice fresh Sand Crab to perk up your morning. Here on the Outer Banks, people generally refer to all of these surf waders as Sandpipers and while this one is of the Sandpiper Family, he is actually a Short Billed Dowitcher. I see tons of these birds here along with Willets which look very similar. I find them extremely tolerant of humans. I got very close to this one who was busy plucking a snack from the surf. Have a Great Evening and Thanks for the Look.
