Red-necked Stint


(Calidris ruficollis)

Red-necked Stint is a small Eurasian sandpiper (peep) that is occasionally seen in western Alaska, especially on Saint Lawrence Island. The face is rufous, but the coloring may be minimal or sometimes even absent on the neck itself. There is a necklace of dark spots, clear white belly, black legs, and a short, straight bill.
