Late. Seen at close range foraging in the wrack line with Least Sandpipers and Ruddy Turnstones. Small sandpiper in breeding plumage with strongly rufous auriculars and crown, with some rufous on scapulars. Fairly long thin bill with slight droop (longer than Semipalmated, less curved than Dunlin). Black legs. Black streaks along flanks (hard to see but present in photo). Photo:

Uncommon due to lack of fresh water on the island. This bird was roosting in a shadowy corner of the fort between the moat and the fort. It kept its head back most of the time but did reveal its long pointed yellowish bill with no hook. Black body with very long triangular tail, very long neck; buffy neck and upper breast indicate female or juvenile. White on wings but limited amount may indicate juvenile? Documentation photo:
