This bird is not just alone, it’s Solitary.
I think it’s a Solitary Sandpiper.
Our pond is so low now due to drought that it has a new “beach” along the edge. And now it has a sandpiper too!
Cornell Lab of Ornithology on the Solitary Sandpiper…
Breeds in taiga, nesting in trees in deserted songbird nests. In migration and winter found along freshwater ponds, stream edges, temporary pools, flooded ditches and fields, more commonly in wooded regions, less frequently on mudflats and open marshes.
Backyard bird #56!
