One of the common migrating shorebirds along the coast in the fall is the Short-billed Dowitcher. They tend to feed on sand and mud flats and are also frequently seen foraging near the wrack line in the washed up seaweed. This Dowitcher has a long straight bill, brownish upperparts, variable spotting on upper breast, streaked flanks, and greenish yellow legs.
