I was there Tuesday and, after reviewing my photos and thinking more about it, I have since them been skeptical myself. While I am no expert on Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, I would have thought the bird would have had more of an obvious crown. I do not remember seeing that rufousy looking crown that was so obvious in Sibley's illustrations. I also wondered if the bird would have lost that much streaking in a period of 4 days-but again, I'm no expert, and often rely on great birders, like Matt. Maybe I could pose those questions to Matt. I did see the streaking that extended to the flanks, that Matt so graciously pointed out to the birders that were present Tuesday, though. Nevertheless, whether it is accepted or not, I had a wonderful time looking at the other rarities . And a great find by Matt!
