Long-billed Dowitcher (Limnodromus scolopaceus)

Above and below: Four Long-billed Dowitchers near Fairmount, Somerset Co., Maryland (11/23/2008).

Below two: Long-billed Dowitcher (left) and Stilt Sandpiper (right), Berlin WWTP, Worcester Co., Maryland (11/13/2005). Note that due to its long legs, the Stilt Sandpiper is forced to "tip up" more than the dowitcher.

Comments:  Photographed at the Berlin WWTP, Worcester Co., Maryland (11/13/2005). The accompanying Stilt Sandpiper was the far more surprising find: it was only the second-ever record for Worcester County in November, and the record late date for the county. The last November sighting was 11/07/1963. (Source: Mark Hoffman)
