The 1981 breeding range of upland sandpipers in Ohio shows a 62.0% decline from its historical range. Breeding populations have significantly decreased in numbers and in flock size since the 1920s. Airport habitats are preferred (74.4% of all individuals reported) over all other habitats and presumably represent critical optimal breeding areas. Proper management of airport habitats is encouraged in order to promote the recovery of this endangered species in Ohio.
