Avian Species - Buff Breasted Sandpiper
Although not a common species, buff-breasted sandpipers have been occasionally found in groups of 500-2200 in migration and on their wintering grounds. Their populations suffered tremendously from the settling of the Great Plains of North America and the Pampas of South America.
Critical Time Periods
The Buff-Breasted sandpipers arrive in their Alaskan breeding grounds in mid April and vacate their breeding grounds in mid-July.
The future of this species is quite threatened. By viewing the population density map below, one can see that the 1002 area is crucial to the survival of this species.
