What species are covered by "peep sp."?
Hi, I'm just wondering what is considered a "peep" by eBird or in general.

Least, Semipalmated, Western, Baird's, and White-rumped Sandpipers are generally considered to be "peeps".

In the world at large there are additional species that fall under "peep". They are all small sandpipers like those Charles mentioned.

Most field guides list whether they are peeps or not. Peeps can be very difficult to identify.

Generally, this term refers to small sandpipers in the genus Calidris.
