Next to it there is a more rufous bird with a very long bill. There is a blade of grass in the way, but the black bill touches the water, as you can see from the ripples. It looks similar to a Short-billed Dowitcher, but again, is much smaller. This bird is about 6 inches, instead of about 11 inches for the Dowitcher. It's about the size of a Common Redpoll and smaller than an American Robin. Can you identify these birds? Write your thoughts in the comments.
