March 2020 Photo Quiz

Tony Leukering
Fairborn, OH

Large rocks by a water body with apparent wave action play a part in this photo quiz.  The shortish, orange legs and long, white wing stripe are also important. In fact, the combo of these features greatly restricts the options involved in the possible solution set of ABA-Area species.

What species is represented here?

Photos and answers are supplied by Tony Leukering, a field ornithologist based in southeast Colorado, with strong interests in bird migration, distribution, and identification. He has worked for five different bird observatories from coast to coast and considers himself particularly adept at taking quiz photos (that is, bad pictures!). Leukering is a member of the Colorado Bird Records Committee and had been a reviewer for eBird since its inception. He is also interested in most everything else that flies, particularly moths and odonates.
