Subject: Posible (probable) Mann lake SHARP-TAILED SANDPIPER

body {height: 100%; color:#000000; font-size:12pt; font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;}Yesterday, I posted photos of a Very bright Pectoral Sandpiper.My initial thought on this bird was that it was a possible Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, but that species is quite unlikely in our area and I have no personal experience with that species.Recent input from a well respected, published expert indicated that it is indeed a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper due to the breast being definitely less streaked than is typical of Pectoral and a warm buff color that grades into the white in the belly, again not something you would see in Pectoral.A comparison with published photos confirms my belief that it is a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper.My photos from yesterdayhttps://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/29938772886/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/29858965902/in/dateposted-public/ This bird was working the beach alone on the Northeast side of Mann Lake Keith E.
