In a first for Washington county, a Long-billed Dowitcher was spotted. This shore bird has a long beak like a Snipe and a very unique call. These are rare around Central Vermont because they prefer mud flats along river beds and sand bars, thus lending themselves more to being spotted in the Champlain Valley. Anson and Chip also talk about the Least Sandpiper and how to identify this tiny shore bird.
