|Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria)
|Pantanal, Mato Grosso, Brazil
The Solitary Sandpiper is the New World equivalent of the Green Sandpiper (Tringa ochropus).
Its non-breeding plumage is similar to its breeding plumage but a bit paler with the throat almost white and with smaller spots on the upperparts.
|The photos show the prominent white eye-ring and the black barring on the tail.
The Solitary Sandpiper nests in the forests of Canada and Alaska then migrates to South America starting in about July. They are the commonest shorebird in inland Brazil and, as their name suggests, they are seldom found in flocks.
