One of my most favorite times is when I get a chance to go to the beach, and if I spot a Sanderling, my day is made.
This delightful little bird runs helter-skelter along the sand, always at the water's edge. I watch as he darts in and out of the incoming surf, stopping for a few seconds to dip his beak into the sand to find a tiny little morsel, until the next wave threatens to overtake him, and then he is off again at break-neck speed.
How I wish I had that kind of energy.
