Crysler - We seldom see adults, only juveniles later on. Generally there are only one or two per year. It is very difficult to tell them apart from Short-billed but there are a few field marks including an under wing pattern difference. I saw that as well.

Richmond - very cooperative individual and my closest approach to this species. I have a number of photos of birds with water dripping off the bill. This is my first 'mud drop'.
