The Pectoral Sandpiper is a mid-sized shorebird identified by its yellows legs and striped breast. It is similar to the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, a vagrant shorebird from Asia, that has been a fairly regular visitor to North America along the Pacific coast. The Pectoral Sandpiper is seen in over half the regions of North America. During the winter months these sandpipers will migrate south into the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
