Friday Bird Blogging

The Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) is a member of the sandpiper family. As this website notes:

The willet’s partially webbed feet (hence the species name semipalmatus) give them the ability to swim well, although they primarily walk or wade as they search for food. Feeding sites are on mud flats, sandbars and along the tidal creeks and pannes (shallow depressions that collect tidal and rain water) of salt marshes.
