The ghostly, breathy whistle of the Upland Sandpiper is one of the characteristic sounds of spring on the northern Great Plains. The bird sings sometimes from the tops of fenceposts or poles, but often on the wing, flying high with shallow, fluttering wingbeats.
When it lands, it may be hard to see in the tall grass of its typical habitat. Because of its short bill and round-headed shape, was once called "Upland Plover," but it is a true sandpiper, and apparently a close relative of the curlews. Feeding Behavior Forages by walking through the grass, with rather abrupt or jerky movements, picking up items from ground or from vegetation. Eggs 4. Young Downy young leave nest soon after hatching. Diet Mostly insects, some seeds.

Numbers probably increased in the early days of settlement, up through the early s, as forest was turned into farmland in eastern North America. During the period of commercial hunting in the late s, great numbers were shot, and the population dropped sharply. Since that time, Upland Sandpipers have recovered in a few areas. Their numbers are apparently holding steady on parts of Great Plains, but in much of the east and northeast they are now very local.
Grassy prairies, open meadows, fields. Favored nesting habitat is native grassland, with mixture of tall grass and broad-leafed weeds.
