Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Twisting and turning on long, angular wings, this relative of the sandpipers and plovers gives a swallowlike impression in flight. Adults are brown overall with an elegant black necklace and pale yellow throat. In flight, dark flight feathers, chestnut underwing coverts, and a bright white rump are visible. Juveniles are a mottled gray-brown above and lack the adult's necklace. Flight call a harsh “tarrack.”
