The willet (Tringa semipalmata), formerly in the monotypic genus Catoptrophorus as Catoptrophorus semipalmatus,[2] is a large shorebird in the sandpiper family. It is a good-sized and stout scolopacid, the largest of the shanks.

Adults have gray legs and a long, straight, dark and stout bill. The body is dark gray above and light underneath. The tail is white with a dark band at the end. It is 13-15 inches long. The distinctive black and white pattern of the wings is a common sight along many North American coastal beaches.
