Observation details

Much larger than nearby SBDO with much longer slightly upturned bill. Bill reddish pink at base with dark tip. Ventral body dark red. Upperparts very dark with pale spotting/edging. In flight showed white at base of tail with black tip. Upperwings showed obvious white stripe. Ventral wings not observed, until later, when I returned to check for the bird again. The underwing coverts were black, bordered on the posterior side by a white stripe. Brooke Morse, Tom and Sue O'Donnell showed up while I was still here and also saw the bird.
