This common North American shorebird was found very far from where its summer nesting grounds in the Alaskan tundra. I found and photographed this western sandpiper at the southern tip of the Florida Everglades on a late winter day within sight of the Florida Keys! Sometimes these birds will spend the winter much further south in Central America.
