Willet (Tringa semipalmata)

Origin: North and South American coastlines
Sighted at: Smathers Beach, Key West, Florida


This is a willet that I spotted during a visit to the beach in Key West! I found this little sandpiper out on the end of a pile of rocks that juts out from the beach.

Like most sandpipers, the willet scavenges the rocks near the coast for tiny crustaceans and worms.
