Tiny and slender “peep” of inland and coastal wetlands, where it is often found in well-vegetated areas such as fields and flooded meadows. Unlike most other small sandpipers in the region, this species has a distinctly long-winged and slender-bodied appearance. Breeding adult and juvenile recall much larger Sharp-tailed Sandpiper in pattern and color; nonbreeding adult rather plain mousy brown above, pale below. Note that long toes project slightly beyond tail in flight, unlike other stints. Flight call a quiet “prrrrp” similar to Curlew Sandpiper.
