August 2012 - Pectoral Sandpiper

Pectoral Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper, Calidris melanotos
The Pectoral Sandpiper nests and breeds in the tundra of Canada and Alaska and migrates to all the way to South America to spend the winter. It is named for the way the male displays its breast markings by inflating air sacs during courtship. One way to identify this sandpiper from others is by the distinctive brown, patterned breast and white underparts.
