Upland Sandpiper

Dropped in briefly while looking for the curlew sandpiper. Upright shorebird with large black eye, yellow bill and yellow legs

1
Curlew Sandpiper

Continuing at the grass flats near the dog leg, scanned through shorebirds for about two hours before finally getting a satisfactory look at this bird. Slender, elongated dunlin like bird with uniformly decurved bull (not drooped at the end like dunlin), feeding more horizontally than dunlin. Finally saw it fly and bank so I saw the white rump in flight.
