Stilt Sandpiper

Jym Mooney, Judith Huf, Dennis Casper, and I by consensus and process of elimination determined that the fairly long-legged, fairly slim sandpiper probing the muddy lakeside edge of the "algae" mat north of Bradford Beach this morning was a Stilt Sandpiper. While the legs were somewhat yellow they weren't quite as long as either Yellowlegs species in relation to the body. The bill was definitely not upturned. Judith felt it was slight down-curved. I noticed a dark wide line above the eyes after Judith pointed it out. It did not quite have a sewing machine probing action like a dowitcher, but it was definitely more methodical in its feeding and less nervous than a Yellowlegs.
