So I went to Rocky Hill Meadows this morning and, saw the two Buff-breasted Sandpipers mingling with the Killdeer, and Least Sandpipers, right before what was probably a Cooper's Hawk chased them all away. When I saw one of them again later, I was able to get a picture (see link below); however, when I compare the picture I took, to the one on Patrick Comins' Facebook page, mine looks a little different, specifically the eye ring. Does my photo show the Buff-breasted Sandpiper behind the Killdeer, or am I mistaken?
