Observation details

Foraging on the drier areas of the south pond, at one point grabbing a small but chubby larva and at another point wrestling with an earthworm as a Least Sandpiper looked on. The Buff-breast seemed to quickly abandon the worm when it wrapped around the tip of the bird's delicate bill. I presume this is a new bird different from 2 Sep.
