Solitary Sandpiper range

The Solitary Sandpiper lives up to its name. This shorebird is most often seen by itself, as it skulks in the shallow waters or through the grasses next to the shoreline. It has no real id factors, except its sleek appearance and very noticeable white eyerings. It spends its winter months in the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
