Long or Short Billed Dowitcher

Recommended Posts

These are all Long-billed. Bill length can be a tricky field mark to use, but in this case the large bill length is very noticable in the last two photos. Another useful field mark is the white chevrons on the scapulars of breeding plumage birds, visible in all of the photos but especially the first.
