      Arctic Shorebird Demographic Network
      Color-marked Shorebird Resighting Report

      The Arctic Shorebird Demographic Network (ASDN) is an international
      collaboration between shorebird biologists who are currently conducting a
      multi-year study to examine mechanisms behind declines of North American Arctic-
      breeding shorebirds.  The Network collaborators’ are color-marking shorebirds at
      7 sites in Alaska (Yukon Delta, Nome, Cape Krusenstern, Point Barrow, Ikpikpuk
      River, Prudhoe Bay and the Canning River) and 4 sites in Canada (Mackenzie
      Delta, East Bay and Coates Island in the northern portion of Hudson Bay, and
      We would be delighted to receive reports of color-marked shorebirds observed
      away from the breeding grounds.  Please look for marked birds of the following
      species and fill out the following resighting report:
                 American Golden-plover           Pluvialis dominica
                 Semipalmated Plover                Charadrius semipalmatus
                 Bar-tailed Godwits                   Limosa lapponica
                 Whimbrel                                 Numenius phaeopus
                 Ruddy Turnstone                      Arenaria interpres
                 Dunlin                                   Calidris alpina
                 Western Sandpiper                   Calidris mauri
                 Semipalmated Sandpiper          Calidris pusilla
                 Stilt Sandpiper                     Calidris himantopus
                 Pectoral Sandpiper                   Calidris melanotos
                 Long-billed Dowitcher                 Limnodromus scolopaceus
                 Red Phalarope                     Phalaropus fulicarius
                 Red-necked Phalarope             Phalaropus lobatus

      All ASDN birds are marked with a white (Canada) or dark green (USA) flag and a
      color band.  The engraved flags will have a 3 letter code of letters or numbers,
      written in white on the green flags or written in black on the white flags, and
      an additional color band (e.g. red, dark blue, orange, dark green, yellow) below
      the flag.  Most birds will also have three unique color bands on the opposite
      leg to further facilitate individual identification during the breeding season,
      as well as a US Geological Survey/Canadian Wildlife Service metal band with a
      unique serial number.

      Please see attached forms to submit resighting records.
