Remember this dapper Green Sandpiper we saw from the Grauwe Gans blind? Well, it took him/her some work to look that good. I snapped some shots of the bird having a good preen.

    Gorgeous shots of the Green Sandpiper Amy! It is fascinating to watch birds as they preen. How they can get to all those individual feathers never ceases to amaze me!
