Requested by: indesperateneedofsomeadventures

Breeding across northern Europe, Asia, and occasionally in parts of Alaska, these shorebirds winter in North Africa and the Middle East. They eat invertebrates, including beetles, caterpillars, and grasshoppers. Females are larger than males and have brighter plumage. Males incubate the eggs and care for the chicks.
