  1. Hi, everybody. Just got back to this post. This field is only abour 12 miles from the nearest saltwater shoreline. I also looked and Dunlin are seen at this site.

  3. TY! I considered Dunlin but thought uncommon in fields?

  5. Going back to my original ID of Cooper's. Thanks, everyone, for the walk-through.
  6. Pic from hubby. Head huge, forward of wings, and turned.
  7. Hubby also took pics, so I went back and looked at those, and all of his shots show a straight leading edge to the wings. In real time, the bird was in full soar, as he was taking advantage of that thermal; there was little flapping or gliding. He seemed too large for a Sharpie, as we had the Red-tailed there for rough comparison and the white terminal bar was prominent, so I opted for Cooper's in the field. Could @AlexHenryweigh in on this one?
  8. Thought Coopers in field, but now I think Sharpie, also. TY!
