WOW! You should totally do it! I’d love to see the breeding plumage photos.

I'll post them if I get them. It's a good time to be in New Jersey since there's a Pacific Golden Plover not far from there as well!

Here's a pair that I never thought of as being easily confusable until I had a backlit view of them. It took me a minute to realize there were two species here while I was watching them. I never expected to have these two species less than a foot away from each other at the same time. 

Female Black-backed Woodpecker and Male Williamson's Sapsucker

Thanks! The Curlew is actually still hanging around & coming into much more colorful breeding plumage. Thinking of going to see it again tomorrow especially now that Wilson's & Red-necked Phalarope as well as Black-necked Stilt have been spotted there!

Where is there?
