Spoonbill Sandpiper film: Chicks on the Tundra

December 5, 2013

The Spoonbill Sandpiper (Eurynorhynchus pygmeus) is one of the rarest, coolest, most sought-after and downright weirdest sandpipers in the world.
This four-minute film from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology shows the parents and chicks, on the chicks’ first day out of the egg. Filmed  on the Siberian tundra by the Cornell Lab’s Gerrit Vyn near Chukotka, Russia.     [Chuck Almdale]
