Actitis macularius | spotted sandpiper

spotted sandpiper, Alex Wang


A less common winter visitor to Hawaii, the spotted sandpiper has short yellow longs, an orange bill with a dark tip, and a body that is brown on top and white beneath. During breeding season, both males and females will gain black spots across their white undersides. The spotted sandpiper can be recognized by its distinct shoreline walk, in which their tails bob up and down.
