Thanks everyone who replied.

I should've put some context around my original post. I went to Koorogang
Dykes recently and I saw a bird that puzzled me, so I just wanted to see if
maybe it was a darkish looking Sharpy, or the Stint that was seen there
last year.

A photo of the bird can be found at
