Dunlins, like many small sandpipers, may not be the easiest to identify, but their arrival by the thousands each winter makes them easier to find.

Active seasons

Winter brings thousands, but some can be seen in spring/fall as well.

How to find

The mudflats of Richmond, and Delta’s Boundary Bay are see thousands arriving with spectacular flock activity.

Found along any coastline in the province, you can mainly find the Dunlin on the South Fraser Bird Trail.
