While in the Utqiagvik (Barrow) Alaska (320 miles north of the arctic circle), we witnessed the Buff-breasted Sandpiper doing its highly entertaining display. It is the only North American shorebird to do this type of display, and fortunately we had excellent conditions (unusual for the area!) allowing me to capture it on video and Dory to get some great stills:
