The Spotted Sandpipers can be found on most lakes and rivers in North America. This shorebird can be recognized by its continuous tail bobbing and its short flights, along with its rapid wingbeats. In nesting season, this bird's breast is covered in dark spots, and in the winter months, it changes its appearance into a grey-coloured plumage. This sandpiper spends its winter months in the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
