Shorebird ID...thought I knew what they were but now not sure.


Recommended Posts

Saw this bird at Palo Alto CA Duck Pond, April 22, 2021 at 7pm.

Thought the original 2 was a Sandpiper at first but now so sure as it could be a Sanderling or a type of Stint.

The 3rd and 4th photo I also thought we’re Sandpipers as well but now I’m just confused.

Thanks again!

Bill

Sanderlings and stints are sandpipers. FYI, stints are very rare to North America.
