A female Semipalmated Sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) at least 16 years of age was observed at a nest near Churchill, Manitoba, which increases the previous longevity record for this species and ties that for the oldest small North American sandpiper. Mean annual adult survival rates since 1993 for Semipalmated Sandpipers in this area were not lower than those for previous years, despite considerable recent habitat destruction by Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens) and a continued decline in numbers of nesting sandpipers.
