Purple Sandpipers
Calidris maritima

Waukegan Beach
Lake County, IL
10 December 2004

One Purple Sandpiper was seen on the Waukegan Beach on 8 December 2004, and then two were there on 9 December 2004. I had a chance to get up there on 10 December, and the two birds were still there.

Usually the Purple Sandpipers at this location hang out on the breakwater; these were on the beach itself.
