Tern and Sandpiper (Okavango panhandle, Botswana) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi everyone,

Needing some help with these if you can please help me. Taken in March.

#1 and #2 - Same birds in both photos. Is that a common or green sandpiper in front of the ruff?
#3 - This tern is transitioning and it's hard to tell if it's a whiskered or white-winged black tern?

Thanks very much!
