A small shorebird which prefers freshwater places such as creeks and ponds or around Montreal in ponds created temporarily by melting ice and snow.
I rarely see this species around Montreal. A good time to look for it is during the period of spring when snow is melting forming ponds and the lack of vegetation provides a better sight.
This species is very similar to Spotted Sandpiper. The Solitary Sandpiper has a darker beak and a more prominent eyering.
