I noticed that the mudflats appeared at Pocahontas last summer, and posted  
the question to the listserv.  Someone from the park responded as you did,  
that it was from disturbance in outlying areas, and also that we had a huge  
amount of rain last summer.  It probably appeared "all of a sudden" after  
accumulating gradually until it finally broke the surface.
To answer your catbird question, none of my field guides mention young  birds 
as lacking the chestnut undertail coverts, although both Stokes and  Peterson 
indicate that it can be inconspicuous.
