Hi all, This afternoon at Reservoir Camp Ground at Wickiup Reservoir I was on my last stop before heading home, at 4.00pm a flock of around 60 Long-billed Dowitchers flew in accompanied by a Hudsonian Godwit. They joined more Dowitchers and a large gathering of Yellowlegs, and Ducks. The bird was seen well and distant photo's were obtained by both me and Craig Miller who was not far away when I called. It was present for 1 hour when we noticed a drop in Dowitcher numbers, we assume the bird left with them. Diagnostic in flight was the Black underwings, White wing bar on outer wing and Black tail with White rump. Slightly larger than Greater Yellowlegs with long slightly upturned redish based bill. The Bird was a juvenile. Wickiup Camp Ground is about 2 miles on the 44 Road off Cascades Lakes Highway. Continue straight to beach and turn left, Four wheel drive is necessary here, soft Sand can be deep in places. Otherwise it's a half to a mile hike.
