Warbler Troubles?

If you have ever worked over Louisiana and Northern Waterthrush with frustration, these photos from my acquaintance Kim G. on Block Island might help. Nice to have a side-by-side comparison once in a while. Comparing Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, Black-bellied Plover and American Golden-Plover, and Short-billed and Long-billed Dowitchers as pairs and side-by-side are always welcome too. Doesn't always happen! I especially like the fellow in the background with the look of trepidation. Looks like he is working hard to drive the comparison home for good.
