and photographed by Michael Skinner on 20 August 2020
One of two found together.
Casual in fall (mainly mid August to mid
September) with 13 prior records for the state, with
another report from this fall pending.
Upland Sandpiper has a very distinctive shape
with small head, large eyes, thin neck and long tail.
Pale face, white belly, and yellow legs are also
distinctive. In these flight shots also note the pale
innner wing contrasting with the dark outer wing and the
distinctive white outer primary shaft.
