Observation details

**Very Rare in Jefferson. My first. On far sw shore then flushed when RT flew over and did not seen again for twenty minutes. Heard calling in flight, which along with long wings, shorter legs not extending past tail, and overall coloration eliminated Pacific Golden-Plover. After not having camera for Stilt Sandpiper I luckily had gone back to the car to get the camera for photos since this is the first record for Jefferson since 3 October 2004, and the first with photos in eBird.
