Long-billed Dowitcher?

Recommended Posts

Calls are the best way to distinguish between the two species. This bird is transitioning plumage. A lot of the identification features that are used with regards to plumage are very challenging when a bird is in the stage. That being said, the loral angle gives me a much more of a SBDO feel to it.

Juvenile plumage for each species is diagnostic, but we are still months away from having juvenile dowitchers anywhere.
