NOTE: all sightings are UNCONFIRMED unless indicated

Ruff (Calidris pugnax) (1)
- Reported Feb 09, 2018 13:53 by Jennifer Rothe
- N. Beaver Creek Rd. , Lincoln, Oregon
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=44.518786,-124.0648699&ll=44.518786,-124.0648699
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S42630674
- Comments: "Continuing individual. Foraging near greater yellowlegs.
Somewhat smaller body than the GRYE and a much shorter, but still
straight, bill. Often holding its neck up straight. Sometimes some of
the feathers on its back would ruffle up a little bit. Overall, the
color pattern was a dull gray-brown back, and a white belly fading
into a paler brown/gray throat and head, with a paler patch just below
the eye. (The most similar bird I could think it would be is a
Pectoral Sandpiper but this bird did not have a supercilium nor the
sharp cut off along the breast like a Pectoral.) Distant though, seen
through a 40x scope at least half way across the marsh from the road.
Seen from the pullout on the bend just south of the Hotspot marker. -
SCR
Jar saw it better and may add more notes shortly."
