Hi Ben,
I would typically reply off-line, but I suspect that quite a few people will 
be interested in your response.  Basically, could you provide some 
additional details on the stint at Craney?  Namely, which impoundment was 
the bird in and what age was it?  An adult would be most obvious, but 
conventional thinking holds that the majority of these pass through in July. 
  It is quite plausible that worn adults or juveniles could still occur 
through August, but indentifying them becomes much more complicated.  Within 
the last week I've noticed that a large wave of juvenile Least and 
Semipalmated Sandpipers have begun moving. Some of these are surprisingly 
bright and really stick out.  This further compounds the problem of picking 
the bird out from the other peep present.  I was thinking about making a run 
down to Craney anyway, and some additional info would be very helpful in 
trying to find and pick the bird out.
