    Molting into first alternate plumage, Stilt Sandpipers like to forage belly up in shallow water as seen here. They are sometimes placed in the monotypic genus "Micropalama." In structure they appear intermediate between typical "Calidris" and "Tringa."

    Credit goes to Mike Ambrose for finding this bird and getting word out promptly. This was probably the most cooperative Stilt Sandpiper I have ever encountered. This species is a rare migrant on the West Coast from breeding grounds in arctic Alaska and Canada to wintering grounds in South...

    Stilt Sandpipers?? Plum Island, MA

    Hello, I made my first trip to Plum Island yesterday and captured this video which I'm hoping contains some Stilt Sandpipers. The main bird of interest is the one preening in the middle, but the four around it look the same (as well as the bird ten/eleven to its right). While I'm posting this...

    I first took this shot because it had Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs in the same frame and really showed the differences in size, bill, etc. But, the third bird in the photo (the middle one) turns out to be a Stilt Sandpiper which a few folks in our bird club had seen at this spot and is a...
