White-rumped Sand­piper

Bird Watching (UK) - - Marvels Of Migration -

These small Amer­i­can vis­i­tors turn up just about any­where in the coun­try. Any water with a beach can at­tract them, so look out! Like Pec­toral Sand­pipers, they are reg­u­lar here be­cause they fly out over the At­lantic on their way south. Iron­i­cally, Bri­tish bird­ers re­fer to them as ‘Yank’ waders, but they reg­u­larly oc­cur here more of­ten than on the coast of Cal­i­for­nia.
