Fauna: Birds

Sandpiper, any of numerous shorebirds belonging to the family Scolopacidae (order Charadriiformes), which also includes the woodcocks and the snipes. The name sandpiper refers particularly to several species of small to medium-sized birds, about 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 inces) long, that gathers in large group in and around the sea beaches and inland mud flats during migration. Sandpipers have fairly long bills and legs, long, narrow winds and farily short tails. They feed on the beaches, mud flats of sea coastlines and inland waters, running along and near the water to pick up insects and worms.
