Purple Sandpiper at Rondeau - Pie Day Birding




Happy Pie Day Everybody!  Today, I had read on the Rondeau Birding What App group that the Purple Sandpiper that had been found by Craig Anderson and Katie Bond (back on March 8th) was still there!

I had heard that the walk to see this bird on the south beach of Rondeau was an 8KM walk one way!

I tried my luck as - this is such a rare and awesome shorebird in my opinion.

Special thanks to Blake as well as the Rondeau Birding WhatsApp Group - as well as the original finder.


PS: This is only the second time I've seen this bird. The first time was back in 2013!
