The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The White-rumped Sandpiper is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This species winters east of the Andes in South America. It nests along the north coasts of Alaska and the Yukon, as well as on the Arctic islands. There have been two Audubon sightings reported in Washington, in Reardan (Lincoln County), in 1962 and 1964. A Thayer's Gull also appeared in Dungeness in early July 1962, predsumably a returning fall migrant.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
