Andy McGann was walking around in the Susquehanna River when he captured this video of a Least Sandpiper in worn adult plumage settling down after a presumably long flight on its southbound migration.

Watch it as it nervously walks around and then eventually settles in once its become more comfortable with its surroundings.

Compare it to a video that Andy took in the spring of a Least Sandpiper in adult breeding plumage.
