Purple Sandpiper

These birds breed in the tundra and spend the winter farther north on the Atlantic Coast than any other shorebird. During winter the feathers are mostly slate-grey with only a faint purple gloss and, despite its name, shows no purple at all in breeding plumage. Like many birds, purple sandpipers are monogamous.
