The architectonic similarity of Calidris and Actitis
to other birds made it easier to define the limits of the area of interest in our stereological and morphometric assays.

-- Knowledge of the breeding distributions of Snowy Plovers (Charadrius alexandrinus), Spotted Sandpipers (Actitis
macularia), and Interior Least Terns (Sterna antillarum athalassos) in Texas is limited to outdated publications and a lack of recent field surveys.
Common Sandpiper Actitis
hypoleucos and Wood Sandpiper Tringa glareola are widespread migrants from the northern hemisphere occurring in small numbers.

Their species composition, which included northern flicker (Colaptes auratus), spotted sandpiper (Actitis
macularia), and robin (Turdus spp.), was very similar to our eastern counterparts.
macularia "playero manchado", de habitos solitarios, comun durante el verano, epoca en que numerosos individuos se dispersan en las orillas de las lagunas y en las comunidades de gramadales.

The second category includes the least sandpiper (Calidris minutilla) and spotted sandpiper (Actitis

A study of sequentially polyandrous Spotted Sandpipers, Actitis
macularia, showed that early-pairing males had higher than expected reproductive success because sperm storage by females allowed these males to father offspring in later broods (Oring et al.
