Now… Which Dowitcher ? There are at least two types.
I have no clue. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out they were something else entirely.
My identification of small shorebirds is ‘suspect’.
This was taken in the early morning light (8:30 AM) which gave both the reflections and sheen over the shallow water.
I doubt I will be seeing any again until next year, this is out a pretty good distance in a large marshland.
