There have been a couple Spotted Sandpipers at Central Winds Park this Spring. Until this year, I’ve only seen this species in Brevard and Orange Counties. It’s been nice to see them in my home county on a regular basis. The one above was taken at Central Winds; one below was taken near Cocoa Beach in the winter time, so he’s not showing off his spots.
