Wandering Tattler in Coiba
Rafael Luck and Euclides Campos found this Wandering Tattler (of the adult non-breeding denomination) on Coiba National Park's Granito de Oro beach, on November 21. Seen teetering like a Spotted Sandpiper, but larger and longer-billed. The photos show the typical tattler jizz, halfway from Spotted Sandpiper to Willet, with a horizontal stance and attenuated silhouette. Notice also the medium bill, distinct facial pattern (dark lores, pale supraloral, white eye crescents), and short, yellowish legs.
