The Whimbrel is one of the most wide-ranging shorebirds in the world. The Whimbrel breeds in the Arctic in the eastern and western hemispheres, and migrates to South America, Africa, south Asia, and Australia. It uses its long, down-curved bill to probe deep in the sand of beaches for invertebrates, but also feeds on berries and insects. Some migrating Whimbrels make a nonstop flight of 2,500 miles from southern Canada or New England to South America.
