Shoreline Sanderlings By Matthew Hillier

By Matthew Hillier

Shoreline Sanderlings by Matthew Hillier

Sanderlings feed on invertebrate prey buried in the sand in the upper intertidal zone. In North America, this largely consists of the isopods, and the mole crab. When the tide is out, these crustaceans live in burrows some way beneath the surface. When the tide comes in, they move into the upper layers of sand and feed on the plankton and detritus that washes over them with each wave. They then burrow rapidly down again as the water retreats. They leave no marks on the surface, so the sanderlings hunt for them by plunging their beaks into the sand at random, consuming whatever they find. Their bills can penetrate only 0.79 or 1.2 inches and as the water swirls around and retreats, the sand is softer; this makes it easier for the birds' beaks to penetrate further
