The Long-billed Dowitcher is one of the larger shorebirds seen in North America. Close observation of the length of the bird's bill and its call are needed, because it is very similar in appearance to the Short-billed Dowitcher. These shorebirds are usually only seen during their spring and fall migrations. Both dowitchers spend their winter months in the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a vagrant in Cuba.
