The birder who called our attention to the white-rumped sandpiper was Bill Van Loon (I believe that is the correct spelling).

>From Jamie Meyers and Jay Kaplan: 
12/1 -- Old Saybrook, Maynard's Pond - EURASIAN WIGEON continues. 
Madison, Hammonasset Beach SP -- CLAY-COLORED SPARROW continues; also there was 
a late WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER in the company of Killdeer in the field near the 
Cedar Island trail entrance. A PURPLE SANDPIPER was on the jetty. 

The sandpiper was found by two birders whose names I don't know. The Sound off 
Meig's Point was quiet but had a hen Surf Scoter and half a dozen Common Loons. 
There were a couple harriers and a Peregrine at foggy Great Island. There were 
two Marsh Wrens near the boat ramp there that were unusually easy to see, which 
was nice. 

Oh yeah, we saw a pretty nice bird in Hadlyme too! That and the wigeon were 
county birds for me. Most pleasing.
