Common Greenshank - Thailand April 2020 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Dear members and bird watchers!

I was in Moo Ban Pramong / หมู่บ้าน ประมง 2 days ago to look for waders and Kingfishers. There were quite a few birds on the mudflats. Attached picture is of a bird I identified as a Wood Sandpiper.

BAck home and I double checked the birds with my book. I discover that the Wood Sandpiper have a white browe and a short tail.

So I look at the redshank, but the redshank don't have any blackish / dark tail as my bird. So I continue my search in the book.

Common Greenshank, no white brow behind the eye and dark long tail. Just like my bird on the picture. BUT! If we look closely on the picture it looks like the bill is redish in the small spot where there is no mud.

Anyone that can be so kind to help me confirm the ID? I would have gone for Greenshank until I discovered the redish bill

Kind regards and happy birding!
