Upland Sandpipers love fence posts. As I drive around in central South Dakota at this time of year, I see Upland Sandpipers on fence posts everywhere I go. Many times I will say that I see one of these birds perched on a fence post. However, I think using the word, perch, is not quite accurate. Sandpipers don't really perch in the way songbirds perch on a strand of wire or a small twig. Upland Sandpipers are really just standing on the post. So, from now on I am going to try to say, "Look! There's an Upland Sandpiper standing on that fence post!" That reminds me of this Bible verse about standing:
"Therefore, put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand."
So, go out today and STAND!
