Monterey Bay Aquarium Sanderling

Monterey Bay Aquarium Sanderling

This sanderling lives in the aviary at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  Most sanderlings live 5 years in the wild, but this happy bird is 22 years old!  Sanderlings can be seen running on the beach hunting for food as the tide goes in and out.
