History of the Red-necked Stint Breeding in North America
Lucas H. DeCicco, Nils Warnock, and James A. Johnson
ABSTRACT: The largely palearctic Red-necked Stint has been documented breeding in the Nearctic Region only in Alaska, from which 12 records were published from 1909 to 1975. In summer 2012 we found a family of Red-necked Stints in the Kigluaik Mountains of the Seward Peninsula, in tundra of the dwarf shrub mat type with ≥50% cover of bare rock. The photographs obtained are the first published of the Red-necked Stint breeding in Alaska.
