Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareolis), Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Year: 2013
From collection: African Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Wood Sandpiper breeds in subarctic wetlands from the Scottish Highlands across Europe and Asia. They migrate to Africa, Southern Asia, particularly India, and Australia. This bird is usually found on freshwater wetlands during migration and wintering. They forage by probing in shallow water or on wet mud, and mainly eat insects and similar small prey. T. glareola nests on the ground or uses an abandoned old tree nest of another bird, such as the Fieldfare.
