Cosumnes semipalmated sandpiper


Glennah Trochet
 

Dear Birders,

There’s an adult semipalmated sandpiper now at the Cosumnes River Preserve in southern Sacramento County. It has a nice, short, blunt-tipped bill, making for relatively easy identification. It’s at the first pond north of Desmond Road about 400 meters east of the railroad tracks. It is in molt and pretty substantially advanced into basic plumage.

Best,
John Trochet
