I was under the false impression (before this year and this blog) that sandpipers were found on ocean beaches and sandy lake shores. Now I know differently. I have seen them in Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge walking in the grass next to a pretty small pond and now here at Farm Pond, walking in the mud among the water lilies.
