Least Sandpiper

Calidris minutilla

The Least Sandpiper is the smallest of the group we call “peeps”. Western and Semipalmated Sandpipers make up the rest of the “Small Peeps” group. These long-distance migrants trave in season between Chile and the Arctic ocean. If the three classic peeps, this bird’s legs are greenish yellow, distinguishing it from the Western and Semipalmated Sandpipers.
