Long or Short-billed Dowitcher

Claude Lyneis

Today, out just north of Pt. Isabel I was getting close to photography some of those tiny peeps, but in the process I got some photos of Dowitchers and remembering the earlier post Jim Chiropolos stating that most are short-billed in the bay, I hesitate to ID it as a Long-billed Dowitcher.  Still that is how the iNaturalist artificial intelligence software I.D.s it.  So I leave it to the EBB experts.  Either way since it was not posted to eBird, it won’t upset the bird counts.
