Least Sandpiper

A termite walks into a bar and says, “Where is the bar tender?”

Interesting Fact: The Least Sandpiper is the smallest shorebird in the world, weighing in at about 1 ounce and measuring 5-6 inches long. Males are slightly smaller than females. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Least_Sandpiper/lifehistory )


  1. Loved the tender bar termite joke !! The Sandpiper is my state bird, South Carolina. Our Grand Strand, as we call our beautiful shoreline, is home to these cuties. I did not know they were the world’s smallest shorebirds. I continue to learn much from you. Thanks, Jan

  2. We had sandpiper nesting in our garden this year. She got four chicks which left the nest at the same day they were born. Amazing 🙂
