Spoon-billed Sandpiper: Foraging

The common foraging behaviors of Spoon-billed Sandpipers on the breeding grounds differ significantly from their behaviors on the wintering grounds. Birds move more slowly and pick food items — invertebrates and small amounts of plant material – from the surface in a fashion similar to most other small sandpipers. In this segment, a mated pair forages along the edge of a snow-melt pond during the egg-laying period of their nesting cycle.

Video includes commentary by The Cornell Lab’s Gerrit Vyn.
