Session 2 – Sandpipers and Phalaropes
Thirty-six of the roughly 50 species of shorebirds that breed in N. America are grouped in the Family Scolopacidae, including sandpipers and phalaropes. Some of these provide the most difficult ID challenges for birders, so we will only cover this group in this session. Kevin will provide a general overview of each species, with some comparisons of similar species. The really in depth coverage of the most difficult shorebird species will be covered in session 3.
