Short-billed Dowitcher

ID'd based on Greg Gillson's descriptions of the differences between LBDO and SBDO during spring migration (http://thebirdguide.com/identification/dowitchers/dowitchers.htm). He describes LBDO as having a heavily spotted throat and barred upper breast, with entirely orange underparts. A caurinis SBDO should be pinkish red with a variable amount of white on the belly, with heavily barred flanks, and a densely spotted breast. The bird I saw fit Gillson's description of a spring caurinis SBDO quite nicely, and caurinis is the expected race of SBDO for western N. America.
