hello everyone, 
is it clear as yet which species this straggling Dowitcher is ??
I recall reading some interesting stuff here a couple of days ago that 
suggested strongly that this bird could be actually a Short-billed - posted by 
a local showing ID notes from a Northern Hemisphere birder colleague who has a 
great deal of experience with both this species & Long-billed on migration, & 
in the hand from banding studies... if my memory serves me rightly, he was 
suggesting a female due to the Oz stragglers long-ish bill, amongst other 
maybe someone should get some voice recordings of this individual to aid in the 
actual ID...??
just a thought...
martin cachard,
