Hi MerryLynn and Tweeters,
It took me about 15 minutes to find it, but then the BUFF-BREASTED
SANDPIPER remained obvious for the balance of my stay. I watched this bird
from about 5:15 to 5:30 PM.
Slightly smaller than nearby PECTORAL SANDPIPER. Had a short black bill,
plain buffy head, neck and breast goining onto the belly. Yellow legs and
"scaly" back. Very erect posture when not feeding.
Thanks to James Cleaver.
