Purple Sandpiper (Calidris maritima) Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis) - Winter Male



Uganda and stops between

1/17/2017: Heard some reports about Purple Sandpipers at this beach. We arrived late in the afternoon, and there were very few people given how cold, windy, and rainy it was. Saw the sandpiper, but I was unaware that there was a Snowy Owl reported by many in the area.
