Semipalmated Sandiper Calidris semipalmatus


Adult, May

Port Mahon, Delaware, USA

This had a well-defined narrow rufous collar - best seen in the lower (unfortunately out-of-focus) picture above.  It was fairly well marked, including slightly stronger flank markings than typical, and more rufous on the crown and ear coverts.
