The White-rumped Sandpiper is a small shorebird known collectively as “peeps” or “stints”. Their preferred breeding habitat is the northern tundra of the Arctic islands in Canada and Alaska of the United States. Nests are built on the ground, and are camouflaged by surrounding low vegetation. This species migrates long distances in the winter months to northern South America. They are rarely found in western Europe and Australia as well. The White-rumped Sandpiper forages in mud, shallow water or tundra for food. More

This morning I decided to try for the White-rumped Sandpiper which had been found the evening 3 Sept. 97 by Nick Lethaby and seen by several observers during most of the day yesterday. I arrived about 10:30am and met Steve Glover, Kevin Hintsa and Ron Lindeman who were looking for the bird. After scoping the pond directly west of the waterbird pond at the north end of the Riparian Station property for about a half-hour, Kevin Hintsa spotted an appropriately shaped bird some distance away in the pond.

White-rumped Sandpiper - Calidris fuscicollisThe White-rumped Sandpiper is a fairly plain sandpiper, somewhat difficult to differentiate from other similarly sized sandpipers, until it takes flight and the white rump becomes obvious. The White-rumped Sandpiper is a very long-distance migrant, summering in the Arctic and wintering as far south as the outer islands of Antarctica. They migrate through in large groups, often stopping at select, traditional locations, making them potentially vulnerable to habitat loss along the migration route. More
