The nest was near a pond in a black spruce forest located on a hill above the southern end of Sutton Lake. It was situated in a 4.5 m (15 ft) black spruce, and was positioned against the trunk, at a height of 2 m (6.5 ft). This nest was an old nest of American robin, composed of mosses, lichens, mud, grasses, and spruce twigs. Both nest and eggs were collected (ROM 9479), and the eggs contained 15 mm (0.5 inch) embryos with formed eyes. Breeding Distribution Records of the solitary sandpiper observed with downy young extend back to 1906. However, it was not until 1964 that the first nest of this species was found in Ontario (Schueler et al., 1974). Although there are very few records of breeding, the species probably nests in wetland (Fig. 163) throughout the forested regions of northern Ontario, where it has been observed exhibiting territorial behaviour during the breeding season. Several published records of nesting in southern Ontario were never substantiated and are now believed to be erroneous.. 181.
