I completely agree with Niven on this - I don't think it's at all unusual to
see Grey-tailed Tattlers with orange at the base of the bill and on the
legs, although most don't show it. Those with the brightest legs also tend
to be brightest on the bill base. I wouldn't expect the color to be as
orange as on a Ruddy Turnstone, but even that can happen.

Peter would have been well aware of this when he posted his note.
