I know this isn't a Dunlin - leaning White-rumped - SW MI 10/28

Recommended Posts

I never caught a view of it in flight.  I had to keep dodging downpours to view this location.  It struck me as White-rumped Sandpiper, and I'm still thinking that just not as confident after looking at the pics.  Long-winged, looked like strong supercilium to me.  It looks a little buffy, but the Baird's I have seen seem more buffy than this one.  The bill looked more drooping than straight.

Why are you disimissing Dunlin?    Bill looks too long for your three mentioned suspects.  BASA and WRSA would also display the long primaries extended above the tail.

Dunlins have much longer bills, there are some in the last few shots to compare with.  I like Baird's here too.
