Distribution

On migration occurs on plains of Kazakhstan, regularly observed on Markakol lake. In highlands of Zailiyskiy Alatau ridge (Bolshoye Almatinskoye lake) recorded in August 4 1972, August 7-22 1975 and in August 5 1976. Though birds recorded in Northern Kazakhstan in summer regularly, only B.K.Stegman in 1932 near Borovoye for a long time observed the pair of Green Sandpipers on the marsh where he saw also the brood some later. Probable nesting in forests of Northern Kazakhstan and Altai has not been proven to date.

Biology

Common passage migrant, probably rare breeding migrant. Inhabits the forest marshes, lakes and rivers. On migration occurs on the fresh and salt lakes, rivers, streams in open landscape. In spring appears in March – April in southern areas, and in the end of April – early May in northern ones, migrate in small groups or flocks of up to two-three dozen birds. Spring migration finishes in mid – end May. Breeds in separate pairs using the old thrush, dove or crow nests. Clutches of 4 eggs is incubated by female. In Kazakhstan the reliable nesting wasn't found. The autumn migration begins in the end of June - July. From the northern areas Green Sandpipers disappear until mid-September, from the southern ones from the early October to early November. In mild winters the singly birds occurs in southern and south-eastern Kazakhstan.
