Willet

Tringa semipalmata

Description:

Adult Breeding plumage

Habitat:

Lagoon shore: Fort Desoto

Notes:

Willets are often seen alone. They walk deliberately, pausing to probe for crabs, worms and other prey in sand and mudflats, or to pick at insects and mollusks. When startled, they react with a piercing call, often opening their wings and running rather than taking flight. Cornell Lab
