I'm a British Birder and have visited the US twice now on two excellent trips, firstly to the unbelieveable Magee Marsh last year and this year did the Upper Texas Coast, down to the border, RGV & the Hill Country which was also superb.
I'm a photographer and took far too many images whilst over there and with my limited free time, I'm slowly plodding through the backlog from April. My father and I didn't nail any Dowitcher id's on call while we were there so hoped to pin them down at a later date on forums such as this.
This was taken April 9th at Anahuac NWR Texas, feeding alone in one of the many freshwater pools with mixed shorebirds such as Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, Least, Spotted & Solitary Sandpipers, Dunlin & Killdeer.
Any id help would be appreciated as would any feedback and mis-identifications on my US site USBirds.Ceeege.Com
Many thanks for your time.
