Biodiversity > Birds > Regular Visiting Birds

Wandering tattler

A Solitary wader, usually seen on remote rocky seashore areas. Difficult to distinguish from the Grey tailed tattler: the call may be best guide- the Wandering tattler has 6 to 10 notes on flying off when alarmed, the Grey tailed tattler has just a double whistle. Also the white eyebrow doesnt extend far behind the eye on this species. Only a handful of this bird at Lord Howe Island in summer, and they breed in Northern Siberia and Alaska.

Length: 27cm
