Western Sandpiper (juvenile), George Lake, Hammond, Indiana - September, 2005

Unfortunately, this bird was one of several shorebird species at this location that had apparently been poisoned by a toxin in the water or the mud.

The following photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995 Digital Camera attached to a Kowa TSN4 telescope.
