More on the Punta Chame White-rumped Sandpiper

Euclides Campos sent in two additional photos of the White-rumped Sandpiper he saw at the former shrimp ponds on Punta Chame last Thursday, September 3. Besides showing the typical elongated silhouette (with primaries that extend well beyond the tail), the bib now looks good for an adult bird. The streaked flanks and pale base to the mandible are there if you squint, and Euclides even saw the white rump when the bird took flight.
