Short-billed Dowitcher

Limnodromus griseus

A regular, though uncommon, species that regularly overshoots during spring migration ending up in the Pribilofs. It is best found during the final 10 days of May. This species is only rarely found earlier in May or into June, with a handful of late June and early July records being the only early summer sightings, while a single early August record exists for late summer. The only fall records are during mid-September, but there are no recent reports from that time period.
