Passing this along.

 From Bob Dewire and Anthea Skiffington:  May 15 at Hammonassett State Park at the small marsh at the Meigs Point parking lot.  One non-breeding plumaged RUFF feeding with several Greater Yellowlegs first found at 1:30 pm.  Watched at leisure noting the size, short bill, buffy color,  greenish legs,  scalloped back pattern.  It flew 3 times showng the showy white oval pattern on the tail.  Still present when we left at 2:30 pm.
