Hi all, with this being a good spring for Whimbrel so far, and there having been a few "Eurasian" Whimbrel on this side of the pond, when possible try to get a look at the rump and underwing of any Whimbrel. This is a good thing to get into the habit of checking on all Whimbrel anyway. Our Hudsonian Whimbrel have dark rumps, while Eurasian have white. This is a potential AOS split.
