Interested in College in Alaska?

Red Knot
Calidris canutus

I do not know if these birds can actually swim, but they certainly seem to prefer staying out of water that is deeper than their legs. This was about as deep as I saw any of them go (relative to leg length).

Location: Sitka National Historical Park, Sitka, Alaska
