Curlew Sandpiper


Calidris ferruginea

A: Krombekstrandloper


A common summer visitor to both inland and coastal wetlands. Its distinguishing feature is its long, decurved bill, and long legs. Upperparts are unmarked in non-breeding, but in breeding plumage they become very scalloped and the bird develops a bright red chest.
