– Comments: “Was doing a dump run earlier in the day and briefly thought I saw a Dowitcher flying around chasing KILL or vice versa. Returned in the afternoon with gear to confirm and found adult or 1st summer(retaining significant amount of non-breeding coverts) bird in pond. Completely at a loss in regard to subspecies but should probably try to assign it to subspecies even though I have hardly any experience with Dowitchers. Going with what I think may be the rarer griseus as oppose to hendersoni because not much cinnamon beyond legs and heavy spotting on foreneck and breast. Have photos will post.”
