Red-throated Pipit

Anthus cervinus

A very rare spring migrant/vagrant with records from late May through mid-June (peaking between June 1st and 10th), while there is only a single summer record from late June of a failed breeding bird. This species is much more common in the fall when it is a regular, though irruptive species that is typically seen first at the very end of August or beginning of September and remains regular well into late September, being found most regularly from September 10th-25th. This species is only rarely recorded into October with the latest records from the middle of that month.
