Rare spoon-billed sandpiper in Thailand


This video says about itself:

Spoon-billed Sandpiper: Foraging

The common foraging behaviors of Spoon-billed Sandpipers on the breeding grounds differ significantly from their behaviors on the wintering grounds. Birds move more slowly and pick food items — invertebrates and small amounts of plant material – from the surface in a fashion similar to most other small sandpipers. In this segment, a mated pair forages along the edge of a snow-melt pond during the egg-laying period of their nesting cycle.

Video includes commentary by The Cornell Lab’s Gerrit Vyn.

Filmed June 9, 2011 near Meinypilgyno, Chukotka, Russia.

Birdwatcher Raphael Lebrun from Belgium, while in Pak Thale in Thailand, spotted a rare spoon-billed sandpiper yesterday.
