Common sandpiper

Actitis hypoleucos


The Common Sandpiper forages by sight on the ground or in shallow water, picking up small food items such as insects, crustaceans and other invertebrates; it may even catch insects in flight. It nests on the ground near freshwater. When threatened, the young may cling to their parent's body to be flown away to safety.
