13 YEAR OLD SANDERLING! The Wetlands Institute shared this fun fact: last fall a sanderling was spotted at Stone Harbor Point. The bird wore a band around its leg containing a code. After submitting the code, Wetlands staff learned that the sanderling was at least 13.5 years old–the oldest ever found! Wetlands staff point out that shorebirds need to rest and forage for food undisturbed; avoid disturbing birds on the beach and follow signage at all times.
