This Short-billed Dowitcher was captured on Tigertail Beach, Marco Island, FL on 15 April 2012. Part of the Shore Birds Reference set.
I read two academic papers and two magazine articles concerned with the differences between short-billed and long-billed dowitchers. I can now categorically state that I am totally confused and I have decided life is too short. But having said that, I think this is a s-bd.
Thank you for visiting, I always appreciate your views, favs, invites and comments.
