In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

I found a small group of Stilt Sandpipers in a shallow pond today. In this photo you can see some of the key field marks of a Stilt Sandpiper in breeding plumage: rust-colored cheek patch, white stripe above the eye, and dark barring on the underside. See? Shorebird identification isn't that tough!
