Observation details

Huge surprise discovering this little one foraging in the grass at the north end of the pond. Tiny sandpiper, about the same size as the house sparrows, with yellowish legs. Seemed totally unaware of its surroundings and walked right up to us. Eventually flew away, calling, back towards the Charles River. Got some poor cell phone photos.
