Product Abstract

The Pectoral Sandpiper is one of the most abundant breeding birds on the Arctic Coastal Plain of Alaska. They typically have low nest site fidelity which is likely related to their promiscuous mating strategy, thus nest densities are highly variable from year to year at a given site (Holmes and Pitelka 1998). In Arctic Alaska, primary breeding habitat includes low-lying ponds in a mix of marshy to hummocky tundra and nests are typically placed in slightly raised or better drained sites (Holmes and Pitelka 1998). Pectoral Sandpipers spend their winters primarily in southern South America (Holmes and Pitelka 1998). The current North American population estimate is 500,000 and they are believed to be declining (Morrison et al. 2006).
