The Galapagos have a mix of resident waders and migratory waders from North America - I was there at the right time for the latter.

Uncommon resident - Endemic sub-species galapagensis of the American Oystercatcher - estimates are of only 200 breeding pairs throughout the Galapagos



Common migrant - Ruddy Turnstone in non-breeding plumage



Uncommon resident - Black-necked Stilt



Common migrant - Semipalmated Plover



Common migrant - Whimbrel; North American sub-species hudsonicus



Resident - American Flamingo endemic sub-species glyphorhynchus; estimated population 400-500 birds





Common migrant - Wandering Tattler in non-breeding plumage



Common migrant - Spotted Sandpiper in non-breeding plumage
