Dowitcher Identification Quiz

So, after reading the last shorebird identification post (if you didn't read it you can go read it here)  regarding the identification of dowitchers using shape; the dowitcher in the photo below should be a piece-of-cake to identify.  Even though this picture is, absolutely no good, you should be able to identify it to species if you read the dowitcher identification post.



Let us know what you think!

I will post the answer in a couple days,
Eric

I am glad that the previous post helped with this bird! Sometimes you have to wait on the dowitchers to identify them by shape until they get in the right position. Everyone that gave it a shot, identified it correctly, it'a Short-billed.
