Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria)
A small shorebird which prefers freshwater places such as creeks and ponds or around Montreal in ponds created temporarily by melting ice and snow.
How To Identify
This species is very similar to Spotted Sandpiper. The Solitary Sandpiper has a darker beak and a more prominent eyering.
Where and When to Spot
I rarely see this species around Montreal. A good time to look for it is during the period of spring when snow is melting forming ponds and the lack of vegetation provides a better sight.
