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.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
The Dunlin winters in large flocks coastally from the north-western tip of Canada all the way south through Washington, Oregon to Baja California and the coast of Mexico. Breeding takes place on the northern Alaskan coast, the Arctic tundra and the Greenland coasts.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
