Subject: [MASSBIRD] followup to mystery sandpiper found by Friday morning birding group a week ago
What was a mystery were the black legs on this very small sandpiper. 
Many field marks could be a least sandpiper but nothing explained the
black legs.  It was in the water bathing and splashing and still the
legs were black at close range.   There was nothing light about the
legs.    The photos forwarded to ebird left them  with the impression it
was a least sandpiper with Mud on the legs to explain the black.  Our
group will leave it as a mystery sandpiper.
