What bird lives the furthest north?

    I’m not sure anybody is entirely certain which specific species of bird is found the furthest north. There are in fact many birds which take advantage of the Arctic as a breeding area in the summertime, and a handful which live there for most of the year. According to Wikipedia, some of the farthest-north observed bird species are the “Snow Bunting, Northern Fulmar and Black-legged Kittiwake,” but they point out that “some bird sightings may be distorted by the fact that birds tend to follow ships and expeditions.” Also attached is a list of the species that have been found in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — perhaps it’ll help flesh out an idea of what birds are found up there.
