This picture is actually of a Marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa). It is the second largest bird in the Sandpiper family; they like to be around muddy pool and marshes. They also like wet sandy shores.
The Marbled Godwit uses its long bill to forage in the sand and mud for insects and small-shelled animals.
Most Marbled Godwits breed in the central United States and Canadian Prairies and winter on the Pacific Coast.
It is fun to watch the birds as they run in and out of the water with the motion of the tide.

Because of your votes for my "Sandpipers" as your favorite picture, it received a "First Place" blue ribbon.
I am deeply honored, thank you very much.
