Broad-billed Sandpiper

Calidris falcinellus

An extremely rare shorebird in North America, this species has only appeared eight times with six of those from the western Aleutians, one from New York, and the single individual found in late August on St. Paul Island. This record coincides with most other records from the Aleutians, with the end of August appearing to be the peak of vagrancy for this species into Alaska.
