Long Billed Dowitcher (Photographic Library)

The above selection of photos were taken in the Arctic breeding grounds of Cape Krusenstern national monument, Kotzebue, Alaska, June 2010. This was a pair which remained together throughout the duration of my stay. They was heard in a display song two times throughout the survey period but no nest was ever found.

The above and below video clips were also taken at the same time, apologies for the un-sharp focusing making the lens zoom in and out this was because this footage was taken at 02:00hrs and in a rather dim arctic light.

The photo and video footage below is of crisp, fresh Juvenile bird taken at Cabo da Praia quarry, Terceira, Azores, September 2009.
