Hi everyone,

I have received an e-mail from Japan regarding some interesting shorebirds
spotted last weekend
in mid-Honshu Island.
Those are likely Semipalmated sandpiper and Cox's sandpiper(Hybrid of Curlew and
and I am seeking for any advice regarding identification.

If interested in this issue, please send me an e-mail and I am going to forward
several files which
contains superb photographs of those birds.

Also there are about a dozen Blue-winged and at least three Orange-bellied
Parrot at Western
Water treatment early this morning.

Best Regards
Tadao (Ted) Shimba

p.s. There are quite a few Western Sandpiper records in Japan, but Semipalmated
       has not been recorded officially yet.
