Spotted sandpiper, Montrose Beach, Chicago, IL

There is a small strip of shallow water along the pier at Montrose Beach and shorebirds can sometimes be seen picking small organisms out of the algae. This spotted sandpiper was unperturbed by my efforts to capture its image and commenced to searching for food once it had determined that I was no threat.
