Stilt Sandpiper

Calidris himantopus

This species is quite rare in the Pribilofs, with most records in the spring during the first two weeks of June. This species is a later migrant on the whole than most other shorebird species in the Pribilofs and the two summer sightings in late June likely also pertain to “springtime” migrants. The two fall records fall during the late end of the typical migration window for shorebirds in the Pribilofs (early-mid September).
