Hi all,
 
Here are updated shorebird videos from this past weekend.  See if you can guess
the species before opening the video links.
 
Be sure to watch in 720P or higher for better resolution.  Allow videos to
process if your computer speed is slow. Watching in 480 is okay, too. Sorry for
the wind noise!!
 
Shorebirds are sure fun to watch!!

 A) This bird is generally nests on wetter lowland tundra compared to it's
counterpart.  It's feeding next to its cousin who has black armpits.

For a comparison, a younger bird:  This 'questionable' one was videoed at
Oceanshores this Saturday.
