Observation details

I heard and identified a clear, richly whistled kakakakaka flyover call as a whimbrel, and then looked up and found it and managed to get terrible photos that narrow it down to LBCU/WHIM. flight call definitive, compared to the slurred kuurleeee of a LBCU. Observed at Exactly 6:30 am at approximately 100 m elevation on southern and western most edge of planted cottonwoods and the bird was flying directly west.
