Preference for moist bluejoint habitat within Alaska. Breeds in marsh/very wet bog and wet bog/wet meadow habitats dominated by moist bluejoint, moist-sedge meadows, scattered willows 1-2 m tall, and scattered ponds. Apparently not found in shrub-graminoid habitat that predominates in this region. Entire breeding population thought to move to intertidal habitats of Alaska Peninsula estuaries after breeding (Morrison et al. 1976, Gratto-Trevor 2000).
