Willet

Willet's tend to breed on fresh water lakes in the western US or along the coast of the northeastern US. The tips of Willet bills are very sensitive allowing them to feed both during the day and at night. This one, like the Sanderling, was looking for small crabs or other invertebrates on the beaches of West Ship Island.
