Birds of Connecticut
Stan’s Notes: The Purple Sandpiper is a common wintering shorebird in Connecticut and Rhode Island. It winters farther north than any other shorebird. It is one of the last shorebirds to migrate each fall.

About the author: Naturalist, wildlife photographer, and writer Stan Tekiela has published more than 175 field guides, nature books, children’s books, wildlife audio CDs, puzzles, and playing cards, presenting many species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, trees, wildflowers, and cacti in the United States. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural History from the University of Minnesota and as an active professional naturalist for more than 30 years, Stan studies and photographs wildlife throughout the United States and Canada.

American Oystercatcher
Stan’s Notes: The American Oystercatcher is a large, stunningly beautiful bird that stands out on the beach. This chunky shorebird has a flattened, heavy bill, which it uses to pry open shellfish and probe sand for insects and worms. Oystercatchers open oysters in two different ways. Some, known as “stabbers,” sneak up on mollusks and stab their bills between shells before they have a chance to close. Others, called “hammerers,” shatter one half.

He has received various national and regional awards for his books and photographs. Also a well-known columnist and radio personality, Stan’s syndicated column appears in more than 25 newspapers, and his wildlife programs are broadcast on a number of Midwest radio stations
