> - Comments: "***early, esp considering the weather, two days later than earliest county record in eBird. Heard only along trail, but fairly close. Gave distinctive, high, piercing, two-noted "twee twee" call. Note sure if flyby or flushed. Further attempts to relocated along muddy edge near where I heard it were unsuccessful. Lesser Yellowlegs (and to a lesser extent GRYE) likely biggest confusion species, but calls were weaker and more piercing (not sure if that's the best way to describe it, but quality of the two are quite different). Spotted Sandpiper similarly unexpected, but my bird had higher, more emphatic calls than spotted would. The bird was heard well, so I am confident I didn't mishear a distant Killdeer or something else. I have extensive experience with this species, and made the identification in the field immediately after hearing the call."
