Curlew Sandpiper
Image by Dave Lambeth. Location: "potato sludge fields" nw of Grand Forks. In this sunlit side view, note scaly appearance of back (compare with Sibley), and lack of markings ventrally except for the breast band. Head pattern also helpful.
Taken: 2004-10-13 From the I-29/U.S. 2 interchange in GF, go West 2 miles, then turn N for 2 miles (past the lagoons) to an intersection. Turn West. In the next half mile, there will be three opportunities to turn right into pullouts where potato waste is dumped.
