The dunlin is a sandpiper. Sandpipers belong to the family of birds commonly known as
waders. Wading through the water on long legs, sandpipers feed on small animals, such as
worms, mollusks, mussels and fish. The name sandpiper is a common name given to those birds
belonging to two subfamilies: Calidritinae and Tringinae. In general sandpipers have long
bills and earthen toned plumage which aids in camouflage. MORE!
