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
