Solitary Snipe

Gallinago solitaria

This species has been recorded twice in the fall during September on St. Paul Island. These arrival dates follow similar patterns to other Asian snipe species found in the Pribilofs but since this species has only one further record from North America during late May and given its low density population and poorly known habits in Northeast Asia, predictions for further records are difficult.
