SHARP-TAILED SANDPIPER, MUSKEGON COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 5 OCTOBER 2019

Surely e-Bird sources do not reflect the totality of American records, published or not. Nevertheless, as of November 2019, 33 of the Lower 48 have records of the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper. Ten of these 33 have just a single record. Panama and Bolivia have a single record as well. Do these records show the frequency of strays across the continuous states? Or do they show a third flyway?--though a minor one, a flyway that leads from coastal staging sites in western Alaska to yet undiscovered wintering areas in South America, a flyway shared with Siberian Pectoral Sandpipers?
