Solitary Sandpiper

The Solitary Sandpiper is a shorebird that breeds (that is, spends its summer months) in the high Arctic and winters in Central and South Americas (as far south as the Pampas of Argentina). Every year in Spring and Fall, they make the trip (“migration”) between the two locales. Isn't it wonder that for all those thousands of miles, they decide to stop over at the humble Frying Pan Farm Park?
