Sandpiper / Peep
Sandpipers or Peeps are the shorebirds from the family of scolopacidae of waders.
They eat very small invertebrates that they can pick from the muddy soil.
They have narrow wings, long beaks and long bodies. They are the species that include medium size birds and small birds. They are brown and grey in color with some of them having streaked patterns in their bodies. They are found all over the world as they are cosmopolitan.
They feed on invertebrates by using three feeding methods which include: pecking, running with the beak under the soil in the shallow waters, and probing in dry habitat.
Sandpiper can be a very good animal totem to us because there is a lot of wisdom that we can derive from their way of life.
