The pectoral sandpiper gets its name from the brown breastband they have. They have mostly brown bodies with white bellies, yellowish-brown legs and long, downcurved bills.
Their diets consist of small creatures that live along the mud on shorelines.
Belonging to a group of birds generally called waders or shorebirds, the common sandpiper prefers freshwater habitats as opposed to saltwater locations.
