Marbled godwits ( limosa fedoa) breed mainly in the prairies of the northern Great Plains, areas with marshes or ponds nearby. They also nest in the tundra of St. James Bay, Ontario and the Alaskan Peninsula. They migrate during the winter to coastal regions with tidal mudflats, marshes, and ponds, some reaching as far as South America, but most winter north of Panama.i

 

Inland they feed mainly on insects and the roots and seeds of aquatic plants, while on the coasts their diet consists of mollusks, crustaceans  and marine worms as well as insects. Often probing so deep with their beaks that their head is underwater, they feed primarily by touch both day and night.

The red knot samdpiper (calidris canutus) has the longest migration of any bird. In lthe new world it migrates from their breeding grounds in the tundra of the Arctic circle in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south. In Europe and Asia it migrates from the Arctic circle in Russia to Africa, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and New Zealand. They breed on the drier tundra and sparsely vegetated hillsides. They migrate primarily along intertidal areas near coastal inlets, estuaries, and bays with mudflats, and open sandy beaches.

 

Horseshoe crab eggs, when they can be found, make up the bulk of their diet. Foraging on the ground, they also eat small snails, crustaceans, marine worms, insects, green vegetation and seeds. They feed mostly by sight, pecking at the surface, but also probe for food beneath the surface where they feed by touch.

The ruddy turnstone (arenaria interpres)  breeds on the artic and subartic coasts and tundra aound the world. During their winter migration they are found mainly on rocky shores, but can also be seen on sandy beaches and mudflats as far south as Argentina in South America and South Africa.

 

They are often seen in flocks as they forage for the crustaceans and insects they eat, by turning over stones and other objects to look underneath, which is perhaps the source of their name. They are also known to eat birds eggs, small fish, mollusks, and worms, as well as carrion and garbage.

Spotted sandpipers (actitis macularius) are a small shorebird found all over Noth America. Central America, the Caribbean and South America down to Brazil on the Atlantic Coast and Chile on the Pacific Coast. Often solitary, look for them anywhere near water like streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, and beaches, particularly with rocky shores. 

 

During the breeding season they have prominent spots on their breasts, which they lack during the winter non-breeding season.

 

They usually feed on insects, crustaceans, small fish, earthworms, mollusks. They can be seen walking quickly, bobbing their tail constantly, often darting toward prey.

The black-necked stilt (himantopus mexicanus) is a shorebird of American wetlands and coastlines. It can be found in the coastal areas of California, through much of the interior western United States, along the Gulf of Mexico to Florida, south through Central America and the Caribbean, to northwest Brazil, southwest Peru, eastern Ecuador and the Gallapagos Islands. Look for it in estuarys, salt ponds, emergent wetlands, and seasonally flooded wetlands.

 

Himantopus mexicanus forages by probing in mudflats, lakeshores, and in the shallow waters of coastlines searching for the crustaceans, insects, mollusks, small fish, and tadpoles that make up the bulk of its diet. It also eats plant seeds, but very rarely.
