There have been a couple Spotted Sandpipers at 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.
