Wandering Tattler

Heteroscelus incanus


Wandering Tattler


A characteristic bird of the rocky Pacific Coast, the Wandering Tattler can be seen bobbing and teetering among the rocks and waves during winter and migration. Some individuals spend the summer along the southern part of the range rather than go with the rest of the birds to their breeding grounds in the mountains of Alaska and northwestern Canada. (Cornell Lab)


Saw this bird near Santa Monica California, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean
