The British Ornithological Union has split the Hudsonian Whimbrel (the predominant one in North America) from the Eurasian Whimbrel. Years ago Dori Sosenski and I (there was someone else there but I do not now remember who) witnessed an Eurasian Whimbrel with Hudsonian Whimbrels at Griswold Point. I still have to submit notes to ARCC admittedly, such a lifetime of mea culpa! Anyway, it is quite possible that the AOU will follow with this split as well at some point. Regardless, it is definitely worth examining Whimbrels for another CT occurrence of this stealth rarity.
