Sandpiper


Recommended Posts

I saw this sandpiper this morning in Lido Beach NY. I think the early-morning light made it look more yellow than it actually was. The greenish legs make me think it is a Pectoral or White-rumped Sandpiper but I really don't know. I'm not sure if the wings are long enough for a WRSA.

Thanks. I picked that photo because I thought the reflection showing the length of the wings relative to the tail would be helpful. I was fixated on thinking it was a White-rumped or Semi-palmated. I thought a Least would have yellower legs but a look at my earlier photos showed that they could be greenish.
