Willet
This common shorebird looks uniformly drab gray in non-breeding plumage until it spreads its wings offering a very different appearance. The Willet is a strictly North American breeding bird with two populations. This is the larger "Western Willet" which breeds inland in the Great Basin and Northern Prairies. They winter along the Pacific Coast south to South America, as well as along parts of the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts where they may overlap Eastern Willets during migration and winter.
