Buff-breasted Sandpiper

Midge Crazy

Viewed 58 Times

This bird and other shorebirds were feeding on a massive wave of midges that were attached to a long concrete pier that extended into Lake Michigan. Besides the Midge in this birds mouth there are two others clinging on to the left breast feathers of this bird.

Great picture of the Buff-breasted Sandpiper! Thanks for pointing out the Midges on the bird – I might not have noticed them otherwise. Looks like you caught it just at sunset – great light!

Glad you waited for the shot! Looks back to traveling to Montrose – good for you. Your EXIF showed it taken in the afternoon.
