Resorting To A Little More Sniping About A Sanderling...

 The Sanderling Resort and Spa.... Why choose there? 

Sanderlings are small, plump sandpipers in the genus Calidris are often called “peeps”


Interesting Facts About the Sandpipers [yahoo.all about birds]

  • Stout and StockyThese are relatively stout looking birds. This is no mistake, and they aren’t simply fat! They have a surprising amount of pectoral muscle in their chests. This muscle is what they use to flap their wings. 
  • High Flying – Having super-strong wing muscles means powerful flight. Some species can fly up to 60 miles per hour! 
  • Watch Your Back – When you feed by sticking your beak into the dirt or mud, it can be useful to see what might be sneaking up behind you. This is why Snipes have eyes set very far back on their heads. Just like woodcocks, this eye placement makes it easier for them to keep an eye on potential predators behind or above them.
Sandpiper and Human Interaction

While human interaction varies from species to species, these birds fly very quickly and erratically, which makes them difficult to shoot.


Humans have not domesticated Sandpipers in any way.

Does the Sandpiper Make a Good Pet

No, these birds do not make good pets. They are wild birds, and do not like interacting with humans. These birds are shy and secretive, and do not like human contact. It is also illegal in most places to own one as a pet.

Individual behavior varies from bird to bird and some species do not interact well with others of their kind. 


... puffed up chests, "high flying", "watch your back", "do not interact well with others of their kind "? Shore, I sea... our "peeps"!


  1. If H. 410 passes they won't be having their outtings at The Sanderling Resort and spy it will be Cape Cod & the Amalfi Coast.

  2. Wait, the exec team is using SECU funding to stay at this place?!?

    1. This explains why my SECU CD rates aren't increasing like my LGFCU rates have over the past few months. Spending our credit union money on vacations for themselves.

    2. Don’t be fooled LGFCU is spending hand over fist too. Annual Meeting with DJ with open bar, over the top not well attended (by members) Summits, Planning session in Biltmore to hardline branch removal and for rates, their CEO/Board is just buying loyalty with rates. I speak with their members every day and most aren’t aware of how the spend their money. They should ask!!!

  3. This bunch raising our loan rates with risk based lending and now they're vacationing on the profits.
    Don't know whether to call that arrogance or ignorance - can't we as owners expel them all from the credit union? If something is not done, we are going to lose SECU.
