Short-billed Dowitcher

Limnodromus griseus

A medium to large shorebird with a long bill. Common on mudflats and shallow muddy ponds along the coast. Rarely found inland. Breeds in muskegs of taiga to timberline, and barely onto subarctic tundra. In migration prefers saltwater tidal flats, beaches, and salt marshes.
