Buff-breasted Sandpiper

Calidris subruficollis

This species has been recorded almost exclusively during the fall in the Pribilofs and it has been found to be nearly annual at that time in recent years. There is a single mid-July record, which is the only summer report of this species with all remaining records being from mid-August to late September, though the species is quite rare into September. The peak in occurrence when a majority of sightings have been recorded is from August 20th-31st.
