Long-billed dowitcher?

Recommended Posts

This is actually a nonbreeding adult/immature Marbled Godwit. Note the large size with an exceptionally long bill that is pink at the base and slightly upturned at the end. Also, this species is buffy overall with brighter cinnamon underwings.

Long-billed Dowitchers would have shorter bills, a darker back, and shorter green (not black) legs.
