RE:  Dutch Bottoms 8/25/07

We saw a bird yesterday that at first glance looked like a sanderling, but 
had odd reddish markings and stripes.  We later compared photos with our 
guides and nothing matched.  I sent images to Don Miller and others, and 
Don, who's had more experience with sanderlings through the year, confirmed 
that it was a sanderling in some idiosyncratic molting pattern.  That  
brings the total to 17 shorebird species at Dutch Bottoms yesterday.
