White-rumped Sandpiper


(Calidris fuscicollis)

White-rumped Sandpiper, along with Baird’s Sandpiper one of two “large peeps” with wingtips projecting beyond the tip of the tail, is distinguished by its two-toned bill with orange red on the proximal lower mandible, and streaked flanks. The namesake white rump is visible only in flight.
