Today, Burke County, GA. Could this be what I think it might be? It appeared to have black legs. Second photo shows it with Pectoral.

Looks like a Semi to me- mid length bill, dark legs, wings reach the tail. What were you thinking it was?

I was thinking and hoping it was a Semipalmated Sandpiper, which would be a lifer.

Oh okay. Congrats then! I thought you were thinking for a large peep.

Oops...not a lifer after all. :classic_ohmy: It's a year bird though.

Don't you hate that?

"Hey, that's a lifer!  Oh, wait; eBird shows it as the only bird on an Incidental report from June of 2013.  What was I doing at some historical marker in lower Alabama?"

But it's worse than that. I had three reports in 2018 and one report had a photo! :classic_blink: I guess some birds aren't very memorable, at least with a memory like mine. :classic_laugh: Now if I forget my Avocets...
