Range: world wide
Alternate adult (facing right) with Ruddy Turnstones and a Sanderling. Photographed
at Cupsogue, New York 26 May 2002.
Although the feathers of the upperparts have obvious white edges, they lack
the dark subterminal bands of juvenile plumage.
Check out Brian Harrington's very readable account of this fascinating shorebird.
