Looks like a sanderling but I defer to the experts....
But, along the idea of id help. Last week, I sent links to some pictures
to Jim Mead and he graciously helped me with an id (Thanks, Jim...it was a
life bird for me) Last night, my sister-in-law sent me some pix of fall
warblers and I could id all but one for her. Is there a good" or best way
to ask people for id help? I don't want to annoy.....
