Peeps Peeps and More Peeps


Recommended Posts

Great, so I've concluded I've moved to a place where I get to ID the two categories of birds that I'm the worst at, gulls and peeps. All I need is a large influx of flycatchers to make it a trifecta.

I obviously punted on these and put them all down as Sanderling. At least one isn't correct, so here goes, and confirms and corrections are appreciated.

July 31st, Willapa NWR/Leadbetter Point/Pacific Ocean side.

I think the first one may be a Western

2 & 3 Sanderling?

4 & 5 I'm inclined to go with Least, which were out there, but I can't tell the leg color, and the primaries aren't long enough for Baird's. Or Sanderling?

Now I've got to go look at the 38 or so photos I took last night hoping to find a Red-necked Stint, that I don't think I have.

I asked for a book on shore birds for my birthday...

Thanks!

Thanks both of you. Someone did finally reconfirm the photos, so that helps me feel a little better about my ID skills I suppose.

Of course, then the other finch I had as a House got unconfirmed then also as a Purple. If it's not a Cassin's, I'm out of birds....
