|Pectoral Sandpiper (Calidris melanotos) Sandpipers and Allies (Scolopacidae)|
|Stribet Ryle Playero Pectoral|
2017-03-27 Presa La Vega, west of Gdl, Jalisco (Jal), Mexico
Adult. My first in Jalisco. Here the base of the bill looks almost reddish compared to greenish normally, but could be due to the photo quality and angle. The streaked breast with abrupt transition to white belly is characteristic. Here with Least Sandpiper.

Adult. Two birds present. A rather characteristic sandpiper with a large brownish body, small head, greenish base to a strong bill and strong green legs too.
