Western Sandpiper
Calidris mauri

I thought this bird might be different than the others because it seemed to have a longer beak with more curvature. After looking at the guide books, it seems that this is not outside the normal variation for this species.

Location: Fish Bay Tidal Flats, Baranof Island, Alaska

Previous: Dunlin (Calidris alpina)
