Peep and a Dowitcher
Posted 21 February 2013 - 04:39 AM
We were wondering what the peep in the center of this shot was with the Greater Yellowlegs and the Dunlins? I thought maybe Western because the back leg looks black.

Any thoughts on this Dowitcher? The bill length is right in the overlap between the two species. Either short Long-billed or a long Short-billed. There are several more pictures if needed.
