Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus) Perna-vermelha-escuro

A coastal over-wintering species in Portugal and told apart from its commoner cousin the Common Redshank by a longer bill and a white cigar along the back instead of an open ended wedge. In winter plumage the belly of the Spotted Redshank is unmarked and white as opposed to the subtle mottling of the Common. Late migrators can occasionally be found and these birds look completely different, with black legs and a near total black plumage.
