The Pectoral Sandpiper is a rather big Sandpiper which resembles the Least Sandpiper, but the combination of yellow bill and streaked chest that is clearly delineated from the white belly is diagnostic. In Costa Rica, this individual is a common passage migrant from August to November, and back from April to late May. It can be found rarely during summer and winter. They like to wade in shallow waters, searching for small prey that they pluck from the water. The individuals below were photographed in Vermilion Lakes, Alberta during a Photography Workshop with ToTheWonder, in September 2017.
