Curlew Sandpiper

Calidris ferruginea

A declining species with limited records from Alaska in recent years, this species is best sought in the fall during the second half of August though records into mid-September suggest arrivals could happen across the shorebird migration period in that season. The spring records are towards the late end for spring shorebird migration, while the summer records are scattered from early-to-late in that time frame.
