It’s Napping Day
Sanderling Calidris Alba
Despite this group-nap pose, sanderlings are energetic birds that migrate extraordinarily lengthy distances each yr. In spring they fly from South America and Africa to the High Arctic beaches and river banks of North America, Europe, and Asia. Once theyve laid eggs and raised their younger, they head returned south again, preventing on seashores along the manner to stitch their needlelike beaks into the sand for insect-sized crustaceans. Having lost an hour due to the start of sunlight hours saving time yesterday, these sanderlings are celebrating Napping Day through sleeping on a seaside in Terschelling, Netherlands.
