Dowitcher


Recommended Posts

Fort Stevens State Park - Parking area D, August 1, 2021. I initially pegged as a Whimbrel because in the photo the bill looks like it's got a curve to it, but it was flagged on eBird, so assuming that is incorrect now. There have been Long-billed and Short-billed Dowitcher out there, but only a single Short-billed, and that would be a life bird for me. Because I haven't ever seen the short, I'm hesitant to call it. Or is it something completely different I'm missing?

I was having a moment where I spotted an American Avocet, which is rare for this area, but as I just moved from Wyoming, I keep having a bit of a chuckle that birds I know as common aren't here. A gal walked along and scattered all of the birds, before coming back and asking me where the ocean was....so these are the only two shots I got of it.

Thank you!
