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.
This sandpiper is found in winter along the coasts of Washington, Oregon, California, Baja California and Mexico. It breeds almost exclusively along the outer northern coast of Alaska. Fairly common migrant in Washington, fresh water. Uncommon on coastal bays.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
