The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is preparing a periodic status review for the Upland Sandpiper, and they need your help!  This rare shorebird species has traditionally nested in grasslands (including agricultural areas) in Spokane County, Washington, but there have been few observations in the last decade.  To include the most current information in the periodic status review, WDFW is looking to data from eBird to help determine if and where birders see this species in 2018.  WDFW is also interested in historical records not previously submitted to eBird or WDFW. If you have new or historical records for Upland Sandpipers, please submit them to eBird Northwest.
