Small desert pond
I saw this odd shorebird after the killdeer and least sandpiper had departed. It looked as if it were larger than the Least Sandpiper. I did not realize that I had photographed an unusual species until after I got home from the outing. It searched for food along the muddy shore of the pond. The bill looks intermediate between Western and Least Sandpiper. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for this mystery bird.
