The key to Upland Sandpiper (Bartramia longicauda) management is providing grasslands of various heights with few shrubs. In general, Upland Sandpipers forage within short vegetation and nest and rear broods within taller vegetation. Upland Sandpipers have been reported to use habitats with less than (<) 93 centimeters (cm) vegetation height, 5–75 cm visual obstruction reading, greater than or equal to 33 percent grass cover, less than or equal to (≤) 50 percent forb cover, ≤13 percent shrub cover, 3–12 percent bare ground, 11–30 percent litter cover, and <13 cm litter depth.
