Artist's Description

Spotted Sandpiper

Tucson, Arizona using a Canon Powershot SX40HS

Bobbing the rear half of its body as it forages. Flying with a stiff and shallow windbeat. The species has one of the widest breeding distributions of any American shorebird. It nests in open or partly wooded areas near water. Migrants and wintering birds occupy many habitats, from breakwaters on ocean coasts to the edge of inland rivers and reservoirs.

VOICE Call a sweet, rising pweet, often doubled; lower and slower than similar call of Solitary Sandpiper
