A small shorebird, breeding in Canada. These birds forage on mudflats, picking up aquatic insects and crustaceans. This species is a long distance migrant, wintering in coastal South America.
The only time I spotted this species happened in Flatrock, Newfoundland.
This species is in appearance very similar to Least Sandpiper. A distinguished characteristic is the color of the legs which are black.
