Hello, I took the photo linked below at Thule Lodge in the Wrangell
Mountains when Mark and I were on our four day adventure....
I thought it was a Pectoral and it has been id'd as such, but after some
thought, how could it be a juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper, when I took the
photo mid May, in the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, shouldn't it be in
breeding plumage by mid-May?
Any insight would be appreciated...

the Lesser Pair continues to feed off and on all day, sometimes the male
shows up alone...but the female is of course still very present. But for
those interested in seeing them, it can be off and on, so if you wanted to
get them on the Pierce County list, it would depend on how much time you
had to sit on a deck in Buckley to get it...
