Sandpipers…  I have always enjoyed sitting and watching these hyper little birds when they show up, at the beaches in my town, Crescent Beach & St. Augustine Beach in Florida.


While looking up the recap of The Oscars (I Don’t like watching the whole drawn out version), I noticed the Short Film, animated category winner was “Piper”.  I haven’t seen Piper, the film from Pixar.  It was released alongside Pixar’s Finding Dory on June 17, 2016.  This little animated film really caught the fun entertaining side of watching these birds on the beach.

I remembered that I had these photos and thought I should post them.  So here they are, the little shorebirds.  The inspiration for the Oscar winning Short Film, Piper!  Also, I found the clip on YouTube.
