Breeds in wet coastal tundra. Winters along mudflats, estuaries, marshes, flooded fields, sandy beaches, and shores of lakes and ponds
There was a large group of these with a few other similar species mixed in such as a few Least Sandpipers running among them and a few Black-bellied Plovers that were as is natural for them much more wary of me and kept moving away. This guys were all on rest mode it seemed. They were a bit humorous looking standing on 1 leg, beaks tucked in to their backs and all fluffed up.
