Observation details

Plump, red-chested shorebirds with black legs and stout and stubby bills acting a bit like dowitchers. Or at least they had their heads under water most of the time. These birds took off after a train, or some disturbance, shook up the scene. Distinguished from dowitchers by their short bill, red on chest going no further onto the belly than the legs, and unmarked sides. All were adults.
