Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

CLOSED: Dowitcher?

Lakeland, FL

Hi, this bird has an extremely long bill - is it a dowitcher? A little blurry sorry - long distance - a couple of views to show the length of the bill

Also third photo - there is a white bird to the right - probably not enough to ID - any guesses?

Central Florida - taken the other day

Yep, a dowitcher, most likely Long-billed Dowitcher (the one you'd expect on a freshwater site).

For the whitish bird, possibly Lesser Yellowlegs, possibly Stilt Sandpiper, but too blurred to tell for sure.

Thank you so much Resin.
