The Semipalmated Sandpiper is one of the smaller species in the sandpiper family seen in North America. These small shorebirds are easily overlooked as they move about through the grass and rocks next to the shorelines. A good identification marker is their black-coloured legs. These sandpipers spend their winter months in the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
