Short-billed/Long-billed Dowitcher

Birds were observed at a great distance so could not definitively identify this group of dowitchers. I addition, most of the birds were in a sleeping posture (i.e., roosting at high tide) with heads tucked into their back feathers

Heard this bird calling as it flew over at about 10 meters. Upon looking up, I observed a medium sized tern with white underparts, gray wings above, distinct black cap with heavy black, gull-like bill.

I initially heard several individuals while pishing for marsh birds and followed-up by observing each individual bird. They were mostly associated with several patches of Spartina alterniflora-dominated salt marsh habitats. All individuals were observed at less than 10 meters with 8.5 x 42 binoculars.
