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.
