Yesterday morning 11/17/19 at the eastern tip of Papago Park at the recently restored lagoon, College & Curry:
I expected to see a Black Phoebe, but the small bird hopping along the rocks at water's edge, repeatedly dipped its tail & its bill seemed long for its size. The nearest I could find was either Louisiana or Northern Waterthrush - maybe possible during migration? We kept too far away to see any markings w/out binoculars & it continued along the rocks around the edge of the lagoon. Any comments from the experts?
