The Upland Sandpiper (Bartramia longicauda) considered the Shorebird of the Prairies.) is a large sandpiper, closely related to the curlews. An adult is roughly 12" long with a 26" wingspan. The average weight is 6 oz. This odd bird has a small dove-like head on a long neck. It is heavily marbled black and brown on the back and wings. The neck is streaked with dark brown which continues down to the breast and on to the flanks. The belly and undertail coverts are white. The tail is quite long for a sandpiper. The Upland also sports a white eyering and long yellow legs. Often perches with erect posture on fence posts and poles.
