  • What's This Bird? | DOS Bird Photo Quiz - October 2015
    are too buffy or pale for our bird The body shape is all wrong for any Plover or Spotted Sandpiper which are more compact instead of elongated and the photo doesn t remind me of any Wilson s Snipe of American Woodcock that I have seen So what we left with A few of the larger Calidris such as Red Knot Pectoral and Curlew Sandpipers both Dowitcher species and the Tringa family that includes Solitary Sandpiper Willet and Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs The defined neat and orderly feather tracts on our bird suggest that it is a juvenile with the sharp crisp plumage it grew into while running around the tundra Let s look at juvenile types of our potential candidates and see how they match up to our bird Curlew Sandpiper by Steve Gantlett Curlew Sandpiper Curlew Sandpiper is compact and stocky with a short neck dark legs and a dark bill which is heavy at the base and down curved Though we cannot see the entire bill of our bird it s obvious the base is not thick Some juvenile Curlew Sandpipers also show a hint of brown color on the neck Red Knot by www gobirding eu Red Knot Once again a stocky short necked bird that has a heavy based black bill Juvenile Knot is also a dark grey Doesn t look much like our bird Pectoral Sandpiper by Nick Pulcinella Pectoral Sandpiper Juvenile Pectorals are a sharp looking brown bird that has heavy brown streaking on the upper breast and a noticeable whitish eyebrow Legs are yellow green the bird in this photo probably has mud covered legs a point to keep in mind when assessing leg color in shorebirds This juvenile Pectoral is way too brown to be our bird Long billed Dowitcher by Keith Carlson Long billed Dowitcher Right away we can see this bird has a lot of brown and reddish brown color on those neatly defined feathers An obvious white eyebrow and look at that bill it s enormous both in length and width Not our bird Short billed Dowitcher by iPaul Cools Short billed Dowitcher Again bill is enormous in length and width The legs are yellow possibly a good sign but look at the general appearance and color Stocky and plumb and brown all over Not god signs Not our bird Stilt Sandpiper by Howard Eskin Stilt Sandpiper This bird looks pretty good except for that wide white eyebrow and that thick based bill Another field mark that juvenile Stilt Sandpiper can show and it is not prominent in this photo is a dark or brown auricular area area behind the eye The legs are yellow but not the bright yellow in our bird more of a greenish yellow One very good feature of Stilt Sandpiper of any age is the slightly down curved thick bill which sometimes causes confusion with Curlew Sandpiper Willet by Curt Hart Willet Once again an almost fit Gray color and streaking look good
