Liz, we’ve had Dunlins and or sandpipers on the Christmas bird counts over the years. Yellowlegs also.

>>> At the ponds on Van Deusen Road late today, north of Emmett, were two groups of sandpipers. One group looked fairly certain to be Leasts - short droopy dark bill, pale legs, up on higher ground in the mudflats - very small in comparison to adjacent killdeer. The other group, which I would have guessed any other time to be Westerns, had longer drooping bills, dark legs, and were wading at the water line. I attach a photo. Can't imagine Westerns being here this late? Any tips would be helpful.
