Unlike most sandpipers, the Upland Sandpiper is completely terrestrial, preferring grassland over wet habitats. The Upland Sandpiper migrates to southern South America where it winters in the grasslands of Pampas for 8 months of the year. It is an Endangered species in Pennsylvania and a Threatened species in New York.
- Habitat Suitability Assessments: Wildlife Specialist's biologists are trained in the procedures used to identify Upland Sandpiper nesting habitat. Upland Sandpiper habitat consists of large tracts of diverse, uninterrupted grasslands.
- Presence/Absence Surveys: Once Upland Sandpiper habitat suitability assessment is reviewed and habitat is found, our biologists are qualified to determine the presence of Upland Sandpipers following state and federal protocols.
- Comprehensive Reporting: Wildlife Specialist's reports contain all necessary information required by the regulatory agencies to evaluate a project. Specifically, we provide detailed habitat descriptions, high quality maps, photographs, and all required data collected at each site.
