|Least Sandpiper (Calidris minutilla)|
Done at Presqui'lle Provincial Park
The Least Sandpiper is the smallest shorebird in the world.
A common small shorebird, the Least Sandpiper can be found in migration all across North America. It can be readily identified by its small size and yellow legs.
Although it is a relatively numerous shorebird, the Least Sandpiper tends to occur in flocks of dozens or hundreds, rather than thousands like some other sandpipers. It also tends to forage at the upper edge of mudflats or along drier margins of inland ponds than other related small sandpipers.
