White-rumped Sandpiper

Very odd looking bird, spent a lot of time looking at it, along with Carol Hughes. It had ochre-colored pigmentation on its face near the bill, which was interesting. Body shape and size, wingtips extending beyond tail, slight streaks on flanks, and white rump all consistent with white-rumped. Some swelling near the tail.
