Learn all about the birds of the family Scolopacidae. These are the sandpipers, snipe, stints, curlews, and many more.
Birds in the family Scolopacidae include all the world’s sandpipers as well as birds such as godwits, curlews, snipes, dowitchers, willets, stints, and more.
We know these as familiar ‘shorebirds.’ They haunt coastal habitats from autumn through spring (Oct to Apr, or so). But in summer most of them migrate long distances to breed in the highest temperate latitudes or in the Arctic.
Learn about sandpiper diversity, evolution, feeding, and more in this episode.
