  1. red-backed sandpiper

    The Red-backed Sandpiper, also known as the Dunlin (Calidris alpina), is a small wading bird, commonly found in various locations worldwide including North America and Eurasia. Its name "red-backed" is derived from their breeding plumage appearance, which features a distinctive reddish-brown back. They are migratory birds primarily feeding on small invertebrates, crustaceans, and insects. Adults in breeding season typically have a red-brown head, neck, and breast with a black belly patch. In the non-breeding season, their appearance becomes more dull and grey-toned.
