Like many shorebirds, C. pusilla is found throughout a large range extended by long seasonal migrations. Breeding occurs in the arctic from Alaska to the Atlantic Ocean, while wintering and migratory populations can be seen in several locations, including the east coast of the U.S. to southern Florida, eastern Mexico and the Caribbean south to Brazil (Terres 1980; Farrand 1983; Paulson 2005).Indian River Lagoon (India River Lagoon) Distribution: Little information is available on the distribution of the semipalmated sandpiper in the India River Lagoon, but surveys have been conducted at sites such as the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) (Collazo et al. 2002). Birds are found on tidal flats or salt marshes in the lagoon and in the swash zone of sandy beaches exposed to the coastal waters of the adjacent Atlantic Ocean (e.g. Terres 1980; Paulson 2005).
