Short-billed Dowitcher 短嘴鹬 at Burnaby Lake Park

“Although both sexes share incubation of the eggs, only the male takes care of the young once they hatch.”

“Unlike the Long-billed Dowitcher, Short-billed Dowitchers migrate in stages, first moving to intermediate areas to complete their molt, then moving on to their ultimate wintering areas. This strategy is called “molt migration.”
