Short-billed Dowitcher, Limnodromus griseus







Size: L: 30 cm. Wt: 100-120 g. Males and females are similar, with females only slightly larger. This species is seasonally dimorphic. Three subspecies exist, L. g. caurinus , L. g. hendersoni , and L. g. griseus . Only two of these, hendersoni and griseus may be seen on the Great Lakes; these two subspecies differ in breeding plumage, but not in winter plumage.

Breeding Adult, L. g. hendersoni : upperparts dark brown, with dark buff feather-tips, giving scalloped appearance; primaries black; head buffy, with dark crown and eyeline, and dark streaking on neck and cheeks; breast, flanks and belly light reddish, with black speckling; tail buffy to whitish, with obvious horizontal, blackish barring; bill long, straight, black; legs dark olive

Breeding Adult, L. g. griseus : upperparts similar to hendersoni , but darker; primaries black; head buffy, with crown, nape, eyeline, and streaking darker than in hendersoni ; breast light reddish, with blackish speckling; belly and flanks light buff to whitish, with black streaking and spotting; tail as in hendersoni , but paler; bill and legs as in hendersoni

Winter Adult, both subspecies: upperparts grey-brown, with faint scalloping; primaries blackish; head, nape, and breast grey-brown, with white eyeline, and faint, dark speckling on breast; flanks white, with blackish barring; belly white; tail as in griseus breeding adult; bill and legs as in all breeding adults
