A spotted sandpiper taking a nap. Interesting fact: the females practice polyandry. She wins and defends a territory. Then she will take up to 4 mates and lay a clutch of eggs for each. The males then incubate the eggs and care for the young. Since the female can store sperm for a month, the eggs she lays for one male may genetically be the product of a different male from an earlier mating.
